LINCOLN, Neb. - Lincoln Police arrested a 50-year-old man for two counts of Generating Child Pornography on Friday.

In November 2019, LPD investigators received information from Department of Health Human Services that Gregory D. Dightman had created child pornography by photographing underage girls under the guise of a paid modeling job.

According to LPD, investigators identified and interviewed an underage victim, as well as obtained digital evidence corroborating the initial information received by DHHS.

Police said the photographs were sexually explicit and violated Nebraska state statutes.

In December of 2019, Investigators served a search warrant and recovered several electronic devices from Dightman’s home.

LPD said investigators analyzed these devices and discovered several sexually explicit images of at least two juveniles that were taken in the fall of 2019.

It was also discovered that Dightman distributed some of the images electronically. Dightman owned a photography business for twenty years called “Fat Boy Photography,” where he photographed individuals as young as 14-years-old. Dightman operated out of a studio in Walton, Nebraska.

LPD is asking anyone who believes they or their child are a victim, contact the Lincoln Police Department at 402-441-6000.
