Hudson used a Kik messenger account to receive and distribute child pornography from others, and used the online account to communicate with others about child sexual exploitation. according to a release from United States Attorney David M. Devillers of the Southern District of Ohio.

In one conversation, Hudson said he viewed child pornography with babies as young as 6 months and that he engaged in sexual activities with a 12-year-old boy. Hudson and the other user discussed finding and abusing young boys, including ways to “lure them in,” the release stated.
