Parkesburg man accused of possessing child porn

A 39-year-old man is facing 68 felony counts of possessing child pornography and related charges following an investigation conducted by the state police’s Central Computer Crime Task Force.

According to state police, on Dec. 18 troopers executed a search warrant at the home of Shawn Michael Brecker in the 200 block of North Church Street, Parkesburg. Police said the search was conducted after investigators determined that Brecker’s computer was sharing images of child pornography over the internet.

On Friday Brecker was charged with 68 counts including possession and dissemination of child pornography and related charges. He was arraigned at district court and released after posting 10 percent of $25,000 bail.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Jan. 30.

  1. A lot of articles online appear to show this disgusting act more and more each year. I even read an article about a boy named Melvin Novak who was molested by Vance Hein a member of the Mormon Church and a good friend of a local Parkesburg guy for 15 years.

    I also read about another case involving the Mormon church and the scouts in Idaho as well. Possible connection? I doubt it, but we should be aware of this to prevent it from happening again in Parkesburg.

    Bravo to the “STATE TROOPERS” for their efforts!

    • I don’t think we should be targeting any specific religious group, be it Mormons, Catholics, or any other. The media tends to sensationalize when it is a large religious organization like the Church of Ladder Day Saints or the Catholic Church, but predators exist in every religion. They place themselves in positions that give them opportunities to groom and abuse victims.
