Man detained for downloading child pornography

CATALAN police in Terrassa detained a computer programmer for downloading child pornography.

It appears the 43-year-old would use his computer skills to get the illegal content without raising suspicion. Computer forensics experts said the files were downloaded from the deep web and could not have been viewed or obtained by the average Internet user.

The detained is said to have conducted laborious and painstaking searches for the illegal material and to have downloaded it between July 2012 and March 2014.

The computer programmer was arrested by the Mossos D’Esquadra (Catalan police force) on July 24, who conducted a house search of his residence and seized webcams, documents, emails, and an undisclosed number of computers. The man was later released with charges.
