12-February-2014


On Tuesday, February 11, 2014, the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's Office issued charges on Craig Pope, 50 years of age, of the 500 block of Scott Avenue, St. Louis, MO 63122, for two counts of Possession of Child Pornography, two counts of Sodomy, four counts of Statutory Sodomy in the First Degree, three counts of Statutory Sodomy in the Second Degree, and four counts of Incest. Pope is currently being held on a $1,000,000 cash only bond. A photo of Pope is attached.

An investigation by the St. Louis County Police Bureau of Crimes Against Persons revealed that Pope had possessed and distributed child pornography. The investigation, which was conducted by the St. Louis County Police Special Investigations Unit, working in conjunction with the Federal Bureau of Investigations, United States Secret Service, United States Division of Homeland Security, and the St. Charles County Cyber Crime Unit, also uncovered that Pope has been engaged in sexual conduct with multiple victims under the age of 16 years with whom he knew to be his family members. The incidents occurred between 1986 and 2014.

Although there are no other victims who have come forward at this time, the St. Louis County Police are asking if anyone believes they may have been victimized by Craig Pope to call 314-889-2341.
