Boone Co. man faces charges related to possession and distribution of child pornography

BOONE COUNTY, KY (FOX19) -

Kentucky State Police say they arrested a Boone County man Thursday for charges related to possession and distribution of child pornography.

The Kentucky State Police Electronic Crime Branch assisted with the Boone County Sheriff's Department to arrest 46-year-old John E. Schank.  He was charged with 17 counts of possession and three counts of distribution of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor.

He was arrested at his home during an execution of a search warrant and as a result of an undercover Internet Crimes Against Children investigation. The KSP Electronic Crime Brand began the investigation after discovering the suspect had shared images of child sexual exploitation online, according to KSP. 

Schank is being held in the Boone County Detention Center.

The investigation is still ongoing.
