The owner of the bar La Porte accused of child pornography and sex crimes


THE DOOR – A La Porte bar owner was arrested last weekend for child pornography and other sex crimes, police say.

Neon Moon Saloon owner Kenneth Alger has been arrested and charged with possession of child pornography with intent to promote, two counts of continued child sexual abuse and two counts of sexual performance by a child. Prosecutors are asking for $ 1.25 million bail.

“He is a danger to the community. He’s a sexual predator, ”said Johna Stallings, head of the Harris County Sex Crimes and Adult Trafficking Division bureau.

In court documents, prosecutors said video evidence seized showed Algiers was engaging in “extreme sexual abuse against [multiple] victims continuously, over the years.

Prosecutors said three of the victims identified so far are girls under the age of 14.

Court documents show that Algiers recorded some of his assaults using hidden cameras. A source told KPRC 2 that Algiers hid some of the images in compartments built into custom furniture.

“During an initial search of the dozen seized recording devices, officers found a large amount of child pornography, both collected and produced by the accused,” court documents said.

Prosecutors are now trying to identify two or three other victims who have been seen in videos. They also believe that there could be other victims.

Prosecutors said some of the evidence found dated back to 2015.

“Aggravated sexual assault on a child does not have a statute of limitations for this very reason,” Stallings said. “A lot of times the kids don’t yell or tell anyone they’ve been sexually assaulted.”

According to Stallings, a conviction on one count of “continued sexual abuse of a child under the age of 14” carries a potential sentence of 25 years to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
