(Boise) – Attorney General Lawrence Wasden has announced the arrest of an Orofino man following a 10-month investigation by his office’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit.
Daniel J. Davis, 19, turned himself into police in Ada County on Tuesday, January 26. A warrant was issued for his arrest at the conclusion of an investigation that included the execution of a residential search warrant in Orofino in June 2020.
Davis is charged with alleged sexual exploitation of a child. He is alleged to have possessed sexually exploitative material. He was booked into the Ada County Jail after being taken into custody.
The Orofino Police Department, Moscow Police Department, Meridian Police Department, Idaho State Police, U.S. Marshals Service and the Clearwater County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office all assisted the ICAC Unit with the investigation and arrest warrant.
Anyone with information regarding the exploitation of children is encouraged to contact local police, the Attorney General’s ICAC Unit at 208-947-8700, or the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678.
The Attorney General’s ICAC Unit works with the Idaho ICAC Task Force, a coalition of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, to investigate and prosecute individuals who use the internet to criminally exploit children.
