KERMIT – A Kermit man faces felony charges for allegedly using minors to film sexually explicit conduct.
Calvin Coolidge Muncy, 58 from Kermit, was arrested Monday by Cpl. N. Mines, Chief Deputy J. Smith and Cpl. E. Williams with the Mingo County Sheriff’s Department after individuals contacted law enforcement concerning a sexually explicit video made using minors at Muncy’s residence at Jennie’s Creek.
A criminal complaint states that on March 15, Muncy filmed sexual acts of a 15 year old female and a 19 year old female while they were inside his residence. The complaint further states that on that day, Muncy provided alcohol to numerous minors at his residence. During that time, Muncy told a 15 year old juvenile female and a 19 year old to strip down naked and “twerk” like Miley Cyrus whose video was playing on the television at that time.
Both females allegedly stripped and began to dance. The complaint states that at some point, the girls were provided with adult novelty toys and were allegedly told by Muncy that it was “okay, they won’t hurt you.” The complaint states that the girls performed sexual acts with the provided toys while Muncy video recorded the acts and suggested positions.
When the girls finished, the 15 year old allegedly sat on Muncy’s lap naked while he grabbed her hips. Witnesses told law enforcement that the acts were recorded by Muncy on his IPhone.
During the course of the investigation, officers spoke with numerous individuals and obtained victim and witness statements. A warrant was issued and a search of Muncy’s residence revealed adult toys as well as videos that were consistent with victim and witness statements.
The case is currently under investigation and law enforcement explains that further charges are pending. Muncy’s bond was set as a $100,000 cash only bond.
W. Va. Code states that any person who causes or knowingly permits, uses, persuades, induces, entices or coerces such minor to engage in or uses such minor to do or assist in any sexually explicit conduct shall be guilty of a felony. If convicted, Muncy could be fined up to $10,000 and could spend up to ten years in the penitentiary.
