Scottsville Man Arrested for Child Porn

arrest shererSCOTTSVILLE, Ky. (12/18/13) — A Scottsville man was charged for child pornography Monday, Dec. 16 in Allen County.

According to a KSP report, the Kentucky State Police Electronic Crime Branch, units from KSP Post 3 in Bowling Green and agents with Homeland Security Investigations arrested Bradley Shearer, 25, of Scottsville on charges related to child pornography.

Shearer was charged with 20 counts of possession of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor, first offense. He was lodged in the Allen County Detention Center.

The arrest was the result of an ongoing Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force investigation by the KSP Electronic Crime Branch.

Detectives began investigating in July after they discovered a suspect sharing images of child sexual exploitation online. The majority of the images depicted the sexual abuse of children who were less than 14 years of age.

A full forensic examination of the evidence is pending and the investigation is ongoing by Det. Josh Lawson.
