CADIZ - A Harrison County grand jury indicted three Cadiz residents Wednesday for allegedly operating a child pornography ring and related-sex crimes. The accused face more than 40 felony charges, including rape, complicity to rape and pandering obscene material. Convictions carry life sentences.

Christina Reed, 33, 583 E. Market St., Cadiz, has been charged with the rape of a victim younger than age 10; gross sexual imposition; two counts child endangering, a felony of the second degree; two counts pandering obscenity involving a minor; and two counts illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material or performance.

Chad Tyler, 29, 413 St. Clair Ave., Cadiz, has been charged with seven counts complicity to child endangering; nine counts complicity to pandering obscenity involving a minor; seven counts pandering obscenity involving a minor; one count of pandering obscenity; seven counts of complicity to illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material or performance; seven counts illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material or performance; two counts complicity to rape of a child younger than 10; and two counts complicity to gross sexual imposition.

Jessica Manbeck, 36, 351 St. Clair Ave., Cadiz, has been charged with rape of a victim younger than 10; gross sexual imposition; two counts child endangering; five counts pandering obscenity involving a minor; one count pandering obscenity; five counts illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material or performance; and three counts child endangering.

Harrison County Prosecutor Shawn Hervey confirmed seven children were involved, from ages 20 months to 9 years old. The crimes involved three sets of child victims with the earliest occurrence in January and the most recent in October. He said it is not yet known how widely the material has been disseminated.

"It's the most disturbing, sick and twisted case I've seen in the last 16 years," he said, noting the possible long-term damage to the children.

The case remains under investigation.

The accused will be in court for arraignment on Monday. Tyler will have his hearing at 1:30 p.m., with Manbeck at 2 p.m. and Reed at 2:30 p.m.
