Accused Richmond pimp acquitted of producing child porn video of two minors in his car, convicted of possessing it

OAKLAND — A Richmond man was convicted at trial of possessing a video that depicting an underage family member and a teen girl engaging in a sex act in his moving car, but jurors acquitted him of the more serious count of producing the video, court records show.

Kealeon Shakur Dyer-Hogan, 22, received the split verdict July 13 after a weeklong trial in federal court. The case centered on the creation of a video that was shot in Dyer-Hogan’s car, while he was driving.

According to prosecutors, Dyer-Hogan filmed the girl engaging in oral sex with his 13-year-old family member, then later asked the girl to prostitute for him, which she declined. Prosecutors wrote in a trial memo the girl later saw a video on social media.

Dyer-Hogan testified during trial he had no intention to circulate the video, attacking a key element of the production charge that requires prosecutors prove that he “knew or had reason to know” that the video would be distributed.

Dyer-Hogan still faces sex trafficking charges that were severed from the child pornography allegations, which came as authorities were investigating Dyer-Hogan for allegedly trafficking a 17-year-old girl in Richmond and Las Vegas. At the time of Dyer-Hogan’s arrest, a defense attorney wrote in court records the alleged victim was an “independent sex worker” close to turning 18 when she and Dyer-Hogan began dating, and that authorities assumed her was her pimp.
