CLAY CO., Ill.---One of Clay County's most troubled young people has now become an accused child pornographer and child molester.

According to authorities, Mychal Bush-King, 22, of Flora, stands charged of a Class X felony count of Child Pornography by Exhibition/Moving Picture (video), and a Class 2 felony count of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse of a child, being 5 years old or older than the child in question.

In this case, the alleged victim is 14 years of age.

Our sources have advised that a little over a week ago, the father of the 14-year-old in question (who is a freshman at Flora High School) was going through his daughter's phone and found texts from Bush-King which implied sexual activity. Turns out that the family lived near Bush-King's residence and the 14-year-old was allegedly sneaking out of the house at night to attend nightly parties at Bush-King's residence...where it's been reported that there was underage drinking and inappropriate activity going on.

The father, whose name we have but are not releasing due to the age of the victim and the circumstances surrounding the case, took the material to Flora police. From there, they called Bush-King in for questioning reportedly last Saturday afternoon, February 7.

When police confiscated his laptop a short time later, it's reported that they found hundreds of photos of local teen girls, naked. Our sources indicate there was a folder created with each girl's name, each photo containing nudes of the underage girls.

Bush-King was arrested and charged on February 8 with the Child Porn. It was charged that the Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse occurred on Feb. 6, immediately preceding the discovery of the phone texts.

Bush-King is no stranger to the lawbreaking world, and Disclosure has been covering his brutality and questionable behavior for years, since about 2007. However, he's always managed to have someone come to his defense and try to cover up his bad acts, claiming "racism" when any reports were made that didn't end up in charges. A couple of years back, Disclosure brought a report in print about an alleged rape Bush-King was accused of but not charged, the lack of charges coming about due to the young man joining the Marines. A subsequent offspring he fathered may or may not have been the result of that incident, which was reported to Disclosure in detail...and which was 'covered up,' according to the victim's family, because of the fact that Bush-King was supposedly some ace ballplayer for the local high school team and because of his military intentions.

Apparently, becoming a member of the military didn't help his proclivities any.

Bush-King is being represented by Clay County public defender Chris Elliott, which means his societal pull might have finally reached its end. He's scheduled for a Feb. 23 preliminary hearing on the charges; Clay County Sheriff's officials have confirmed that as of today, he is still locked up pending either posting of bond ($100,000) or court hearing resulting in release. Terms of Bush-King's release, should he be able to post bond, are listed that he is not to be on school property and not to be in the presence of any child under the age of 18. We were unable to obtain a mugshot at this time and will likely be able to have that early in the week this upcoming week; keep checking back, as it's possible that further counts will be filed OR the case might go federal, as many child porn cases do.

    It’s a shame that reporters like you have to totally degrade a person they report about to sub-human levels. Mychal has made many, many mistakes, but in absolutely no way does that give you, an unaffected third-party, the right to take him over the coals like this. Reporting what happened? Absolutely fair. Speculation that “may or may not” be a total confirmation due to terrible journalism skills? Even that can be looked over. But attacking Mychal is a totally other thing. Mychal has made many mistakes that will live with him the rest of his life, but he does not deserve to be spit on by the likes of you. The people touched by the findings and reports here don’t deserve what happened to them, but Mychal still deserves the respect afforded to human life.

    • He doesn’t deserve to lick the dogshit from the bottom of my Timberlands. He’s been REPORTED to us as doing this for years. This includes OFFICIAL police reports, which “went away” for some reason. You have to wonder why…and why ANY fool would come to his defense at this juncture. When the feds take this case over, I hope to hell YOU come lick the dogshit…because you’re right down there in the mire with him, Marcher.

    Once again, I’m not discounting the amount of pain, suffering, and shame Mychal has caused to OUR community. And it’s all fine and well that you were given the details and asked to report on the findings of the investigation, but attacking Mychal’s humanity is on an entire other level. Your carefully crafted comment on not only Mychal but also me leave no doubt about your inability to appreciate all human life, no matter the screw ups, and no matter the pain brought on by others. Mychal made mistakes, no doubt; but you are the real criminal, choosing to deface someone like this.

    And to be clear, because I’m not sure you are comprehending what I am saying, I am not denying any of the facts and reports in your reporting of a crime that had already been reported on. Nor am I defending Mychal’s actions. I am defending the humanity that you seem to have declared yourself worthy enough to take away from him. Surely it’s something other than your linguistic abilities that gives you this self-approved right to destroy the one thing every one of us have in common.

    • Buahahaha….I’m the “real criminal” because I’m reporting FACTS?

      Sad that YOUR community, with two newspapers and a radio station, keep the ENTIRE community in the dark as to what a menace this person has been to numerous females and their families. They can’t handle FACTS…one has even told us point blank and in person that they “don’t report charges, only an outcome,” meaning someone whose case will drag through the court system for years could be menacing an entire community and few would know about it (except the victims and their families), and so it breeds an entire group of people who in turn can’t handle FACTS, either.

      I can plainly see you’re one of them.

      But thanks for the compliments on my linguistic abilities.

      Nevertheless, I’m not taking ANYTHING away from BushKing. That joker has done it allllllllll on his own. I’m just reporting what he’s done. Too bad there are those who are too blind to see that.

    What’s laughable is you trying to attack a town who has the right amount of resources for the given population. All that I need to say about that one.

    And, because you are from the community and know extensively the details of our town system, I’m sure you feel like you can discount a small town newspaper not wanting to destroy a person’s entire reputation over unofficial speculation. And I’m sure they report facts when facts are founded and truthful: in fact, I’ve got an active subscription and a basket full of papers that shows our facts and figures all over them. And the best part of our newspapers are that we don’t let reporters treat people like scum, dirt, or anything less-than-human. And because you extensively know the details of our community, you probably also know that this news that you’ve brought up about an alleged rape and previous past is no secret to the community.

    The main reason for my original post was to confront you about the drastic language you use to degrade Mychal. You’ve since stooped to degrading myself and our entire community. It’s clear to see who can freely go walk around Richland County and who needs to sit behind a computer screen and degrade everyone in an entire community, the livelihoods of several employment establishments, and our very news sources as being less than this piece of journalism that belongs in the rants section of Craigslist more than it does on a News Source. Mychal deserves no subhuman treatment from a substandard reporter like yourself.

    • A: I’m not attacking any ‘TOWN.’ I said COMMUNITY. That would be a grouping or collective of people. Your grouping is unfortunately kept in the dark because of lack of genuine media coverage. That’s all I need to say about that one.

      B: No small or large town paper uses unofficial speculation when they go straight to the SOURCE: Police reports (which I have), charges (which I have) and those affected by the whole thing (which I have, both in the past and the present case). Those are all considered OFFICIAL. If you don’t believe that, you need to research real journalism a little bit. You’re obviously lacking in experience.

      C: “Drastic language” is called for in this circumstance. When the whole thing is said and done, what’s going to be written about this Marching Moron who has gotten by with way too much for way too long is going to curl your toenails…and you’re going to see that what we’ve published here is mild by comparison.

      Now, I’m going to give you a little task. That thing that you’re typing on? hold it up in your hands. Is it made of paper products, dead trees? No, it’s not. It’s an electronic instrument. On that instrument, you can access the internet, the worldwide web, the big dubya-dubya-dubya. It is not a newspaper. It doesn’t have paper pages. I illustrate this because you need to be very clear on something: THIS IS A WEBSITE. THIS IS NOT A NEWSPAPER. We put our newspaper product ON this website, in the form of an e-Edition, that little “e” standing for ELECTRONIC. But our physical newspaper cannot be made to be electronic, any more than your electronics can be made to be paper. Therefore, you’re looking at, and referring to, two totally different formats. On the WWW, we have, since 2009, been a sort of weblog, or blog. That is full of opinions and reports and foul language and anything else that anyone on the internet is going to be used to. But in print, it’s more of a straight, here’s-the-presentation stuff…you know, like your local papers obviously DON’T do, and which you’re not used to. You’re just going to have to get over the fact that here, on this electronic thing known as a website, you’re going to get me calling a Marching Moron a Marching Moron, a cretin a cretin, a menace a menace. That’s what we do here, and we’re not going to change it for ANYBODY. If you don’t like it, don’t read it. That’s very, very simple…and apparently, so hard to achieve for some.

        Jack, I have not seen this reported anywhere but The Disclosure. Hmmmm… Yet Kyle calls you a substandard reporter…… When I want to know what the hell is going on in Southern Illinois, you can bet that I look HERE first!

        BTW, what is the latest on the Highsmith aggravated DUI charge from last summer??

        • RandalC

          This is yet another indicator that we need to get sports out of education at the primary, secondary and college level. How many times have you heard an Orwellian comment such as “sports builds character” or “sports is good for the moral fiber of the young man”??? Former grade school and high school athletes are some of the rottenest SOB’s we have in Southern Illinois! What about Penn State and the Anal rape of young boys there involving their football program???

        • Well, I haven’t pulled that file in a while. Going up there this week if the weather slacks off some…I’ll see what I can find out. Thanks for reminding me!!
