Man Allegedly Tried To Print Child Pornography At Store

A man in New London, Connecticut, allegedly tried to print pictures of child pornography at a pharmacy.

On Dec. 17, 2015, an investigation was opened when the pharmacy alerted police that David Gunn, 41, was allegedly printing inappropriate photos, the Hartford Courant reports. Gunn was arrested that day on unrelated charges and police seized some of his electronic devices.

Investigators from Connecticut's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children worked together on the case. The investigation found that Gunn was in possession of numerous images of child pornography on his devices, according to police.

On April 14, Gunn was charged with possession of child pornography in the second degree. He is being held on a $50,000 bond.

It is unknown what sentence may be handed down to Gunn should he be found guilty, but a recent child pornography case in Connecticut resulted in a sentence of nine years and a lifetime of supervised release when the convicted's jail time is complete.

Jonathan Rhodes, 32, was found guilty of one count of distribution of child pornography. He had accessed a peer-to-peer file sharing network and downloaded six videos that showed minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, WTNH reported. When Rhodes' electronic devices were analyzed, at least 1,533 images and 49 videos of child pornography were found. Most had children younger than the age of five in them.

Rhodes had previously been sentenced to 12 months in prison through a special court-martial while serving in the U.S. Navy in Jacksonville, Florida. He also received a bad conduct discharge from the military.

In Arizona, a supervisor at a CVS Pharmacy was arrested after pornographic photos of minors were found on the store's picture printing kiosk, The Arizona Republic reported.

The arrest of Michael Brown, then 49, occurred after detectives were told by another CVS manager at the same store that pornographic photographs were found on the store's photo kiosk, the sheriff's department said.

A search of Brown's home found that he had hundreds of photos of girls under the age of 14 who were either naked or semi-naked, according to KTVK. The photos found on the kiosk were of young girls in various stages of undress.

Brown was arrested on nine counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison for printing child pornography and will also face lifetime probation with sex offender terms.
