A Hopkins County man is arrested on child exploitation charges.

Kentucky State Police 33-year-old Daniel M. Adcock, of Dawson Springs, was arrested Wednesday morning as the result of a joint undercover investigation by KSP and the Madisonville Police Department.

Authorities say the investigation began in February after the MPD received a complaint from the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children.

The complaint involved Adcock using the Internet to solicit minors for explicit photos and sexual performances.

Adcock is charged with:

  • Possession of Matter Portraying a Sexual Performance by a Minor
  • Unlawful Use of Electronic Means to Induce a Minor to Engage in Sexual Activity or Other Prohibited Activities 

Both charges are class D felonies. 

Adcock was taken to the Hopkins County Jail.
