Newport Man One Of Two Facing Child Porn Charges

A Providence man is due in district court on charges he shared images and video of child pornography, and a Newport man faces similar charges.

State police say 30-year-old Harry Hernandez is scheduled for arraignment Monday after being arrested by members of the Rhode Island Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

He is charged with possession and transfer of child pornography. Police say they traced someone sharing the images and video to Hernandez's Internet connection and found the material during a search of his house Monday.

It was not immediately clear whether Hernandez had a lawyer.

Thirty-two-year-old Stephen-Lawrence Ellis of Newport was charged last week with possessing and transferring child pornography. He did not enter a plea during his arraignment and was released on $25,000 surety bail or $2,500 cash.
