The case of a Missouri man charged with possession of child pornography, traveling to meet a minor and grooming appears to be ready for jury trial later this month. 42-year old Shelby D. Weston of Monett, Missouri appeared in Fayette County Court for a pre-trial hearing with defense attorney Monroe McWard on Monday afternoon. During the hearing, Assistant State’s Attorney Brenda Mathis informed the court that State’s Attorney Josh Morrison has indicated that he is ready for trial. For the defense, McWard said he believed that they too are ready to move forward with trial as well. McWard did request that Monday’s pre-trial hearing be continued to Friday morning, November 9 at 11am with no objection from the State. Weston is charged with six counts of child pornography for allegedly possessing three photographs and one video of a child the defendant should have reasonably known to be under the age of 13 with those four counts all being Class 2 felonies that are each punishable by three to seven years in prison. Weston is also charged with two charges of possession of child pornography as he is alleged to have possessed two photographs of a child the defendant should have reasonably known to be under the age of 18 which are both Class 3 felonies and punishable by two to five years in prison. Weston also faces the two other charges that led to the discovery of the alleged child pornography as he is charged with one count of traveling to meet a minor, a Class 3 felony punishable by two to five years in prison and one count of grooming which is a Class 4 felony punishable by one to three years in prison. Weston does remain in the Fayette County Jail on $250,000 bond.
