CLARE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A Mid-Michigan couple has been arrested for multiple sex crime charges.

Jason Shannon, 41, of Clare County, had been trading child sexually explicit materials with a man in Kansas, Michigan State Police said. Agents from the Department of Homeland Security and Kansas investigators conducted an investigation in Kansas in January, which led to Shannon.

Shannon is a registered sex offender in Michigan.

Investigators executed a search warrant on his Sheridan Township home and seized computers and equipment used in downloading and distributing the sexually explicit material, police said.

In another investigation, investigators discovered Shannon and his significant other Crystal Little, 32, of Sheridan Township, may have been sexually assaulting a child, police said. The couple confessed to doing so to investigators.

On Feb. 24 the 80th District Court issued warrants for Shannon and Little.

Shannon faces charges of criminal sexual conduct, child sexually abusive activities, and several other charges.

Little faces charges of criminal sexual conduct, providing sexually explicit material to a minor, and aiding and abetting charges, police said.
