Jackie O's Half-Brother Being Investigated For Child Porn

James Auchincloss, the 62 year-old half-brother of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, is not in danger of overtaking his sis in popularity. He's currently being investigated for possession of child porn in Oregon.

Auchincloss (pictured on the right, with munchkin on left) shares a mother with Jackie O, but has a different father. He's lived a relatively quiet life in Ashland, Oregon for almost 15 years. But last October, police were tipped off that he and a friend had a stash of child porn; the investigation is ongoing (computer data mining issues are involved), but the accusations are pretty stank:

In an Oct. 17, 2008, affidavit for a search warrant, Det. Arthur LeCours with the Ashland Police Department said he found photographs in booklets and on carousel slides of naked, 7- to 16-year-old boys in sexual poses at Auchincloss' home...

In addition, two Ashland residents, Eddy McManus and Karl Iverson, told the Daily Tidings that they saw Auchincloss and Vickoren viewing child porn on a computer in Auchincloss' home, located in the 700 block of Benjamin Court, last summer.

The cops also think Auchincloss has "taken photographs of clothed children locally," but he's not judged to be an "immediate threat," so he's free and uncharged so far as the investigation continues. He was turned in by his personal assistant. Caroline Kennedy is his half-niece. In case you were wondering. His denials do not seem particularly vociferous:

He didn't refute LeCours' statements in the affidavit concerning the child pornography found at his home, but said the situation was a matter of privacy.

"I think the point has to be, 'Is there a manner of being predators? Is there a manner of encouraging sex abuse by offering money or being in that trade?' And none of that is true," he said.

Oh well, "His willingness to talk about famous relatives has made him something of a persona non grata in Kennedy circles over the years." They must be pretty close to cutting him out of the family entirely. First it was the talking to the media, now it's the child porn. Only one more strike, James!

Camelot!
