Sean Spillum, Minot, found guilty of possession of child pornography

Court records show that Sean Taylor Spillum, 22, Minot, was found guilty by a jury on Thursday of one count of Class C felony possession of child pornography.

Judge Doug Mattson ordered a pre-sentence risk assessment for Spillum and ordered him taken into custody.

According to court documents, Spillum was arrested after the Minot Police Department received a report in November 2018 from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that Spillum uploaded sexually explicit images of girls between the approximate ages of six and eight to Dropbox in October 2018.

He had admitted to police that he requested pornographic images through KIK messenger and said he received a link by an unidentified person, which opened in his Dropbox account. Spillum admitted to watching one of the videos featuring teenage girls.
