BEND, OR -- A Bend man was arrested this week for allegedly uploading explicit photos depicting child pornography. Lt. Clint Burleigh says on Wednesday, Bend Police executed a search warrant at a home on Ferguson Road, following up on a tip from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. "Back in October, we received a tip from the ICAC Task Force regarding some child pornography suspected of being uploaded. We were able to identify where this was occurring. During the search warrant, several hundred photos of child pornography were located."
Detectives spent seven hours at the home. During the investigation, they arrested 22-year-old Jonathan Walior on 20 counts of Encouraging Child Sex Abuse, but Burleigh says more could be added, "When somebody uploads or passes on child pornography, it becomes a crime. That’s what this person did – uploaded several hundred different photographs of child pornography." The investigation is ongoing.
