FBI report details child porn charges against Whitson

Agents reveal evidence

(Continued)

Somerset —

The federal affidavit detailed six images discovered during a search of the files, all of which allegedly showed young males in sexual positions. The affidavit states that those images detailed in the document are not all of the pieces of evidence found by investigators. 
“Based on a preliminary review of a small portion of the digital media recovered from Whitson’s residence, multiple images of pre-pubescent boys engaged in sexually explicit conduct were found,” states Lambdin through the affidavit. “Based on the file names, visual content, and digital characteristics of those images, Whitson knowingly received those by accessing the internet through a computer.
“The images, based on those same characteristics, were produced and then transmitted in interstate commerce using a computer,” continues Lambdin. 
Whitson is lodged in the  Laurel County Detention Center. He will be arraigned in U.S. District Court.
