DALLAS, TX – A DFW radio DJ has been charged with producing sexually explicit images of a prepubescent child, announced U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas Chad E. Meacham.
Clois Glenn Raborn, an 49-year-old radio personality known for occasional appearances on 97.1’s “The Russ Martin Show,” was charged Wednesday via criminal complaint with production of child pornography. He made his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Cureton on Thursday afternoon. A detention hearing has been set for Wednesday morning.
The investigation began in March 2021, when Mr. Raborn’s roommate discovered lewd images of minor children on Mr. Raborn’s laptop.
According to the complaint, law enforcement conducted a forensic analysis of the laptop and found images of an adult male, believed to be Mr. Raborn, allegedly engaging in sexual conduct with young child.
The child’s mother confirmed her daughter’s identity based on images of her face and other items. She also told law enforcement she recognized Mr. Raborn’s hand in some of the images.
She estimated that the child was between four to six years old when the images were taken.
A criminal complaint is merely an allegation of wrongdoing, not evidence. Like all defendants, Mr. Raborn is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
If convicted, he faces up to 30 years in federal prison.
The U.S. Secret Service’s Dallas Field Office and the Euless Police Department conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandie Wade is prosecuting the case.
