Grundy County Man Accused In Child Porn Case In Court

Jimmy Walter Rollins

A Grundy County man facing federal charges on making child pornography was in U.S. District Court in Chattanooga Monday morning.
Forty-four-year-old Jimmy Rollins was indicted last week on nine counts of child pornography production, after investigators found more than 300,000 photos and videos in his Palmer home. He’s accused of sexually exploiting at least 15 young boys from Grundy and surrounding counties.
Rollins went before the judge for a detention hearing. Magistrate Judge William Carter advised Rollins should be detained based on the evidence in the case.
Winchester Police Department Detective Chris Layne testified while searching Rollins’ home, investigators discovered videos of Rollins performing sexual acts with the boys. Layne also says two of his victims are a father and son. The father was abused decades ago and Rollins recently preyed on his son.
