A 25-year-old man was arrested in Kansas Wednesday on Texas warrants for possession of child pornography and online solicitation of a minor. Kansas will extradite Timothy Alan Neudeck back to Texas, according to the office of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
The AG’s Child Exploitation Unit worked on the case in cooperation with several other law enforcement agencies. Neudeck reportedly fled to Kansas before the warrants were obtained by the CEU and was located with assistance from the national Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Neudeck will be extradited back to Texas, where he faces third-degree felony charges.
Paxton’s office was asked for its assistance on the case by the police department in Lexington, Texas, after the mother of a 15-year-old said she discovered explicit online conversations between her daughter and Neudeck, who lived in Lexington at the time. CEU investigators found evidence confirming the mother’s allegations.
The Texas Attorney General’s Office works to protect children by using the latest technology to track down online predators. The Child Exploitation Unit proactively seeks out and arrests predators who commit crimes against children using technology and online sources. Paxton urges all parents and teachers to become aware of the risks our children face on the internet and
take steps to help ensure their children’s safety.
