Man Facing Several Child Porn Charges Makes Court Appearance

A man facing 100 charges related to child pornography was briefly in court on Monday. Officials say 30-year-old Charles Tanner’s pre-trial conference was continued to September 21 at 1:30 pm. While they were another case last year, McCracken County Sheriff’s Deputies got a search warrant and seized electronics belonging to Tanner. Working with the Attorney General’s Forensic Unit, detectives say they found nearly 2,000 photos of child pornography. The images reportedly included very young children and teens engaged in sexual acts, seemingly by force. Tanner was arrested May 21 and faces 99 counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor, and one count of use of a minor in a sexual performance.
