Police arrested a Florida man on July 7 after discovering over a hundred child pornography videos in his home.
Law enforcement officials arrested Ronald A. Lynn after they visited his home in Daytona Beach, Florida, on June 29 and asked him several questions regarding certain file-sharing programs he had used, ClickOrlando reports.
According to police, Lynn told officers he downloaded and watched child pornography several times. He said he obtained the pornography through peer-to-peer file-sharing sites.
Officers searched Lynn's house and seized several electronic items including DVDs, CDs, computers, a camera and a hard drive. The hard drive reportedly contained about 150 suspected child pornography videos.
Ronald reportedly claimed that the porn was "only of kids I didn't know," adding that "maybe we can work this out since they are not local girls."
Lynn has since been charged with two counts of promotion of sexual performance by a child as well as 18 counts of possession of photos of sexual performance by a child. A judge has set his bail at $210,000.
According to Enough.org, child pornography is one of the fastest growing online businesses, with about 58 percent of all known child abuse domains being housed in the U.S. Of those who have been arrested for possessing child pornography, about 40 percent had sexually assaulted the children as well.
