Man arrested for child porn admits selling drugs to children

MILLINGTON, TN (WMC) - A 55-year-old Millington man is accused of selling drugs to, and sexually exploiting, children.

Shelby County investigators searched James Holiman's home at Flag Manor Apartments after gathering information that he was in possession of child pornography.

Once inside, the investigators found child porn on Holiman's cellphone. They also found more than three pounds of marijuana in various forms, including frozen brownies and marijuana seeds.

Holiman told investigators he had been selling the drugs to children. He said he saw a black man doing it, so he decided it was an "easy" way to make money.

Holiman is being held on a $225,000 bond and is due in court on August 3. He is charged with several crimes, including possession of marijuana and especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.
