Former youth minister Timothy Travis Simon, 33, has been charged with six additional counts of possession or promotion of child pornography and is back in the Erath County Jail with each charge carrying a $200,000 bond — a total of $1.2 million. 

The District Attorney’s Office released the six warrant affidavits revealing more details about the case.

“A forensic extraction was performed on Simon’s cell phone,” the affidavit states. “(Officers) discovered several images of child pornography that were located on Simon’s cell phone. One of the images found on Simon’s cell phone shows what appears to be two boys between the ages of 10 and 14 years of age.”

Simon is accused of not only having the images on his phone, but sending the images, which were sexual in nature, to an individual through the WhatsApp on his cell phone, the affidavits state.

The affidavits describe each image of boys exposing themselves and engaging in different sexual acts. 

Justice of the Peace Judge Shawnee Bass has set conditions if Simon does post bond, which include no contact with anyone under the age of 18 and no social media.

Possession or promotion of child pornography is a second-degree felony, which can be punishable by a sentence of two to 20 years in prison if convicted. 

Simon was first arrested on Friday, Nov. 17, and charged with one count of possession or promotion of child pornography. He was released after posting a $15,000 bond. 

Simon had resigned from his position as the youth minister at the Graham Street Church of Christ one day prior to his arrest.
