Dallas Weber, 40, and Ashley Weber, 37, both of Thornton, were each indicted on one count of “Aiding and Abetting Production of Child Pornography.” Both are accused of using a minor child to engage in sexually explicit conduct and producing child pornography from that conduct in June 2020 in Taylor County.

The two were arrested in August 2020 after a family member discovered a camera with video and photos of the acts on it and turned it over to law enforcement.
