— A Raleigh man was arrested Saturday on child porn and sex charges for the second time in two months.

Daniel Louis Jenkins, 46, of 6909 River Run Apt. 21, faces charges of indecent liberties with a child, first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and disseminating obscene material to a minor under age 16.

An arrest warrant states that Jenkins had the child undress during a game of strip poker and then took pictures of the child.

He is also accused of committing "a lewd and lascivious act upon the body" of the same child and giving the child pornography, the warrant states.

Authorities said the child was less than 16 years old but didn't disclose the exact age or gender.

The alleged abuse occurred between August 2008 and June 2009.

Jenkins was arrested on June 22 on charges of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. A warrant stated that he had images of several children engaged in sexual activity.

He was being held in the Wake County jail Sunday under a $1.6 million bond. He was scheduled to appear in court Monday.

    no one knew what was going on. The victims had been with a friend of divorced parents and were over at the Dad's place.

    He was never released after the first arrest. He was still in jail, not released. More charges come in and he is reprocessed, gets formally charged, new mug shot and then goes back to his cell.

    smack: I don't think, I know I'm a great parent! My 15 yr old won't don't a thing b/c she knows, not only does she have to answer to mommy, she also has to answer to daddy (btw, whom lives at home with us & we're married)!!! My kids are not scared of me but scared of what me have them read and watch and we talk to them about peer pressure and that they should be independent in and of themselves! We always, always talk to our children & I think (IMO) that is something "some" parents are lacking. I don't have to worry about them making up accounts or sneaking out of the house at night b/c we give them their freedome "to roam around the neighborhood"!!! You teach your children as you were taught as a child & my parents were awesome! We diddn't sneek out the house, do drugs, hang out pass curfew, b/c we knew we wanted to have the opportunity to do it again, so we didn't disobey. My children, don't disobey b/c they want to be able to hang in the neighborhood with their friends.

    I understand there are rights afforded all of us if arrested, such as bond. However, if someone commits a violent act, the bond is usually high enough to keep the person in jail. These crimes against children, as they are against any of us, are in my mind as violent as a beating, if not more so. When you take away the sanctity of one's body, you are attacking the victim and causing terrible harm that can and does last a lifetime. Keep these people in jail please.

    a DRIP of CARAMEL- ok so you know what goes on in your house but what about at school or a friends house? they could easily set up an email account on their own that you don't know about. elementary school age children know how to do that.

    the point is that no matter how great or avid of parents all of you think you are- there are ALWAYS ways for children to get around that. it's oftentimes the children with the most strict parents that act up the most when they're on their own. unless you wake up every hour on the hour each night to check on your child you won't always catch them sneaking out. unless you call your house every 5 min when you're not there then you can't be sure they are there.

    Pedophiles and sex offenders don't get generally get "cured" and have a very high recidivism rates. Coupled with the horrendous nature of these crimes, effectively murdering the trust, childhood, and, in many case, any chance for a normal relationship, of a child, these crimes have to be taken very seriously. They cause way more damage in most instances than a murderer, as these sex offenders are usually prolific. If he's been caught twice in as many months, I am sure there are many other instances the authorities don't know about.

    Hater Like Darth Vader, your opinion is unfortunate. I wish I could say it was naive, but it sounds more like you are condoning the behavior. Besides, there's nothing in the article to suggest that this child was "15 or 16." It says, "under 16." It's opinions like yours that allow any sympathy for these sociopaths.

    How about we quit pointing the fingers at the parents and discuss the real problem - the perv in the article who should NOT have been walking around free after the first offense.

    "Is it wrong to propose a solution to this type of behavior? Why not push a new law that would punish second repeat offenders by paralyzing the from the waist down and let their own care takers take care of them instead of the state spending tax dollars to build building to house them in? I say this is a good idea and it takes the worryation away from parents and from the public." -calvincol

    This was one of the basic principles of the Third Reicht in Germany. Eliminate those who are weak or have psychological problems for the greater good of society. If you move to Saudi Arabia, this is the way the law works. And you are free to move there, but it is a violation of the U.S. Constitution and would completely circumvent everything we created this country for if the government had the power to kill or maime whoever they wanted.

    And furthermore, what is "worryation"?

    1.6 mil for webcam action. It doesn't bug me because his bail is set so high as much as it bugs me that the bail for assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill is often times set lower.

    In my opinion, there is a greater good for society in forcing pedophiles to seek psychiatric help than the good that comes out of locking them up at the public expense. However, we try to focus on helping murderers, rapists, and theives get off drugs and get their lives together when they are an obvious threat to society. And for the record, I refuse to group child molesters in the same ballpark as a guy who looks at 15 and 16 year olds on his computer. I do agree that there is a risk for it to turn into more, but I think mental healthcare is the solution, not jail.
