Sex offender indicted on child porn charges

A child molester considered likely to reoffend was arraigned on child pornography charges in federal court Monday.

Donald D. Holloway, 50, has been in Spokane County Jail since December after federal authorities said he'd uploaded child pornography to the Internet.  Holloway was on probation for a 2002 marijuana conviction; he was booked into jail Dec. 22 for violating his probation.

According to his probation officer's report, Holloway uploaded pornographic images of teen and pre-teen boys in March, April and July 2009.

A grand jury indicted Holloway last Thursday on a federal charge of receipt and attempted receipt and child pornography for alleged activity between Sept. 18 and Dec. 21 in Valley, Wash. Holloway had lived in the 2900 block of Bakie Road in Valley since at least April 15, 2009, when the Stevens County Sheriff's Office issued a notice warning residents of his presence.

Holloway was convicted of indecent liberties in 1981 and second-degree and third-degree child molestation in 1992. His victims were between the ages of 8 and 16 and were male and female, according to the sheriff's office.

Holloway, a level 3 sex offender, pleaded not guilty to the new federal charges on Monday and remains in jail.
