Richmond Police have charged a 35-year-old man with having child pornography. Police booked Sean M. Burkhead into the Madison County Detention Center on charges of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. Police say the charges stem from a 2011 investigation.
Police say they were first tipped In January, 2011, that Burkhead was involved in downloading and viewing child pornography from the internet. An investigation was initiated into the allegations at that time.
Back in March police searched Burkhead’s residence, recovering a computer and numerous other storage devices and ancillary items. All items were eventually sent to the Kentucky State Police Electronic Crimes Section for examination.
Police say the examination identified four images on Burkhead’s computer that depicted females obviously under the age of 18, and one image of an infant.
