More child pornography charges have been filed by the Vermont Attorney General’s Office against a Hardwick man

 More child pornography charges have been filed by the Vermont Attorney General’s Office against a Hardwick man. Travis Godfrey, 26, pleaded not guilty to 11 new counts of felony possession of child sex abuse materials in Caledonia Superior Court on Wednesday. In November of 2021, Godfrey pleaded not guilty in Orleans Superior Court to a charge of promoting a recording of sexual conduct by a child by sharing via Facebook Messenger an image of a child being sexually assaulted by a man. The new charges stem from searches of Godfrey’s digital devices last year. On Wednesday, Caledonia Superior Court Judge Justin Jiron heard a request by Assistant Attorney General John D.G. Waszak that he set bail of $25,000 on Godfrey. “Given the weight of the evidence – there are 11 new additional charges the defendant wasn’t charged with in November,” said Waszak. “Perhaps he was hoping we would not locate these items – over a thousand similar items if you read the affidavit and the forensic report.”
