An Aurora man is facing multiple charges after he produced child pornography with several victims in the Denver metro area, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Denver. 

Prosecutors said Ryan McCraw, 37, was indicted October 26 on charges of coercion, enticement, and production of child porn. He entered a not guilty plea on Thursday.

Prosecutors said McCraw met underage boys living in the Denver metro area through online chat services. He engaged in sexually explicit conversations with the boys for several months and asked them to send him sexually explicit images, according to prosecutors. He enticed the boys to meet with him at his home, picking them up in his car if they were too young to drive. Prosecutors said McCraw engaged in sex acts with the boys, filmed them, and took still photos of the boys, including photos of bondage. He did this for about a year with multiple victims, according to prosecutors. He boasted online that he had “trained” 12 boys. 

Prosecutors believe there may be other victims. Anyone who is a victim or knows of someone who is a victim is asked to call the FBI at 970-663-1028. 

McCraw is charged with two counts each of coercion, enticement, and production of child pornography. He also faces one count of transportation of child pornography.
