FAYETTE COUNTY, KY (KFVS) -

A man from Fayette County, Kentucky was arrested Thursday for allegedly sharing child porn on the internet.

On Thursday at approximately 8:45 p.m., the Kentucky State Police Electronic Crime Branch, assisted by KSP Post 12- Frankfort, arrested Daniel Alberto Silva-Moreno, 30, on charges related to possession and distribution of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor.

Silva-Moreno was arrested as the result of an undercover Internet Crimes Against Children investigation.

The investigation resulted in the execution of a search warrant at Silva-Moreno’s residence on March 3, 2016.

Equipment used to facilitate the crime was seized and taken to KSP’s forensic laboratory for examination. The investigation is ongoing.

Silva-Moreno is currently charged with 15 counts of possession and three counts of distribution of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor. Each charge is a Class-D felony punishable by one to five years in prison.

Silva-Moreno was lodged in the Fayette County Detention Center.
