Teen Faces More Than 100 Charges Of Child Pornography Possession And Molestation


A Florida teenager was arrested and is facing more than 100 charges, including 93 counts of child pornography and four counts of molestation.

According to reports, 16-year-old Jared Kyle Henry was arrested after authorities discovered that a computer at his home address had shared images online. It was discovered during the investigation that some of the images showed Henry molesting the same child.

Henry was arrested on October 1 after authorities used a warrant to search his home and computer. The teen, who attended Plant City High School, is being held on $802,000 bail.

In addition to his child pornography and molestation charges, Henry was also charged with nine counts of promotion of a sexual performance by a child.

“I never thought that a 16-year-old would be doing that,” said peer Korey Jackson.

Authorities say that Henry will be prosecuted as an adult, and an investigation is ongoing as police fear there may be other victims.

“In cases like this, that is a concern,” said Florida Department of Law Enforcement spokesperson Samantha Andrews. “We don't want to rule anything out.”
