KY man charged with 2,000 counts of possessing child pornography

NELSON COUNTY, KY -

A Nelson County man is currently being held on charges that include 2,000 counts of possessing child pornography.

Police served a search warrant at the home of Richard Keene, 44, of Bardstown earlier this month.

Keene was arrested and charged with 11 counts of distribution of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor and 2,000 counts of possession of matter portraying sex performance by a minor.

Keene's arrest comes as the result of an ongoing undercover Internet Crimes Against Children investigation that began in September 2011.

Kentucky State Police detectives began investigating after detectives discovered Keene sharing images of child sexual exploitation online.

Equipment used to distribute child pornography and thousands of images and videos of child pornography were seized and examined by KSP's Forensic Laboratory prior to the arrest.

Keene is currently being lodged in the Nelson County jail.
