The FBI has arrested a Fort Hood soldier they say possessed and helped produce child pornography.

Sgt. Wade Allen Perkins of the 306th Military Intelligence Battalion, 470th Military Intelligence Brigade, was charged with production of child pornography.

Perkins directed a woman, with whom he was romantically involved, to produce graphic cellphone videos and photos of her 3-year-old son while Perkins was stationed at Fort Hood, the affidavit states. The woman has not yet been charged.

Perkins confessed to the accusations and detailed to investigators in multiple interviews how he coerced the woman into producing the child pornography.

Perkins first met the woman while stationed at Fort Sam Houston. They developed a romantic relationship, and Perkins began to urge the woman to introduce her son into their sexual activities, the affidavit states.

She initially resisted but eventually acquiesced, allowing Perkins to molest the child in her presence.

In interviews, Perkins said he is an excellent “manipulator” and “receives pleasure from such activities,” the affidavit states.

In November 2011, Perkins transferred to Fort Hood while the woman remained at Fort Sam Houston. He then sent her repeated instructions to create pornographic images of her son and send them to Perkins.

In December and January, the woman sent pornographic images to Perkins via her cellphone. Some depicted her performing a sexual act on the child, the affidavit states.

The boy also told investigators both his mother and Perkins touched his genitals.
