Raleigh man accused of taking inappropriate pictures of 2-year-old girl

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Raleigh Police Department arrested and charged a man they say took sexually explicit pictures of a 2-year-old girl.

According to the arrest warrant, 46-year-old Robin Christopher Hildred took the pictures "for the purpose of sexual gratification" on multiple occasions in November and April.

Hildred was charged with 12 counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, 10 counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and sexual offense with a child.

In court Monday, the judge told him he is eligible for more than 280 years in prison on the child exploitation charges.

The felony sexual offense with a child charge has a maximum penalty of life without parole.

Raleigh police haven't released details of the crime beyond what's listed in the arrest warrants.

The physical location of the crime isn't clear but the warrants say the pictures were taken while the victim was "posted on a changing table."

It's also not clear how the crime was discovered but Hildred was also charged with possession of child pornography. That pornography did not involve the 2-year-old, but rather other unknown victims.

He is being held under a $3,000,000 bond.
