33-Year-Old Tampa Man Charged With 100 Counts Of Child Porn

TAMPA, FL. – Tampa Police detectives began conducting an investigation following a National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) CyberTip regarding multiple files of child pornography, including some depicting the sexual battery of a child.

On May 11, 2021, detectives executed a search warrant at 16227 Enclave Village, Apartment 207. Multiple computer devices were recovered belonging to Daniel R Hemphill, 33, who advised police that he was the only person with access to his cell phone and that facial recognition is required to unlock the device.

The items were transported to The Tampa Police Cyber Crimes Lab for forensic review.

During the forensic review, over 100 images constituting child pornography were recovered. Many of the images contained on Hemphill’s device depict various forms of sexual battery of a child.

Based on the admission that no one other than the defendant has access to his phone, facial recognition is required to unlock the device, and the number of images and videos located on the device during the forensic examination, a warrant was issued for Hemphill’s arrest.

On Monday, May 24, 2021 Hemphill surrendered himself at Orient Road Jail. He was charged with 100 counts of Possession of Child Pornography (10 or more images).
