A Montgomery County man was arrested on child porn charges.
William Davis, 52, of Skippack Township, is charged with dissemination of child pornography, possession of child pornography and criminal use of a communication facility.
The investigation began September 4 when an East Norriton Township detective was conducting an undercover, electronic communications operation on the internet. During the investigation, the detective located a computer that was configured to anonymously share files with others. When the detective connected to the computer he received 73 sexually explicit files and determined 24 of those depicted child porn.
Investigators traced the computer to Davis’ home, officials said. Detectives then executed a search warrant at the home and seized Davis’ computer. Officials say they found 19 child porn videos and images on the computer.
Davis was arrested on December 1 and released on $5,000 unsecured bail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Thursday morning.
