Law enforcement trace child porn files to Pennsylvania man

Viewing, creating, receiving or sharing child pornography is a crime associated with serious consequences both in Pennsylvania and on the federal level. For instance, first-time offenders charged with producing pornographic materials of minors may be required to spend between 15 and 30 years in prison. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, pictures of minors are considered child pornography even if the children are not engaging in sexual activity. Additionally, the age of consent does not apply in these cases. Any pictures or media files containing explicit images of children under the age of 18 are considered illegal.

A man in Pennsylvania was recently arrested and charged with multiple counts of child pornography in addition to three counts of invasion of privacy and one count of criminal use of a communication facility. After investigating multiple files, law enforcement officials discovered several pornographic videos and photos of children between the ages of six and seven-years-old and footage recorded from a window of two underage females. The man was linked back to these activities after it was discovered that a computer was downloading pornographic materials from a media-sharing network. The IP address of the electronic device making these downloads was eventually identified as providing these documents to the man’s house.

Due to the severe penalties associated with child pornography charges, being accused of this crime has the potential to follow a person long after their case has concluded. Those facing charges for child pornography should consult with an attorney who can provide guidance during this uncertain time.
