A Shawnee man has been formally charged with 10 felony counts in connection with a child pornography investigation.

David D. Shoopman, 29, is charged in Pottawatomie County District Court with six counts of manufacturing child pornography, three counts of sexual abuse to a child under age 12 and one count of possession of child pornography.

The filed charges allege the offenses occurred on or between Jan. 8, 2014 and Jan. 10, 2017.

In the manufacturing counts, charges show he is accused of manufacturing photos depicting a child under the age of 18 in sexually explicit poses or acts. In the sexual abuse counts, charges allege he abused a minor child and the possession count alleges he had pictures and a video.

A probable cause arrest warrant shows Shoopman visited a friend's home on Jan. 8 and allegedly left a digital camera there when he left. The friend contacted police Jan. 10 after reportedly finding the digital camera while cleaning. The arrest warrant shows the friend turned the camera on out of curiosity and saw inappropriate videos and photos that included Shoopman and a minor.

Police located Shoopman and following an interview, he was arrested and booked into the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center, where he remains jailed on $75,000 bond.

His next court date on the 10 felony charges has not yet been scheduled.
