O’Connor indicted for child porn

A 40-year-old Cumberland County man was indicted on 10 counts of possession of child pornography by a Cumberland Grand Jury in late April.

Charles Alexander O’Connor was arrested Friday, April 28, following the indictments, according to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office.

The investigation of O’Connor began in November, according to Investigator Chris Stimpson, after the sheriff’s office received a tip that O’Connor had illegal images on an electronic device.

“(There were) some pictures on a electronic device that he had,” Stimpson said. “So, basically just a tip came in.”

O’Connor has a trial scheduled for Sept. 5 in Cumberland Circuit Court.

According to Stimpson, a magistrate released O’Connor on bond.
