Man charged with child porn on social media

A man is facing charges after allegedly downloading child pornography online and using it to blackmail two women.

The woman said she was duped into downloading the child pornography, but the man later admitted to the charges.

Two of the women were arrested in February after police searched their home.

The man has not yet been charged.

The charges come two months after a man allegedly downloaded child pornography on social networking sites and sent it to two women, one of whom was a babysitter.

He also allegedly sent them a link to a photo of a naked woman.

One of the two women told police she downloaded the images in February.

Police say they have also charged a third woman, who has not been named, with possession of child pornography.

A man was charged with possession and distribution of child porn in March after he allegedly sent a photo to a woman in a social networking group.

He has not previously been charged with any offences.
