    Pottstown Mercury: Phoenixville Middle School teacher charged with child porn (Dec 2 2013)

    According to an affidavit of probable cause filed by the state police’s Bureau of Criminal Investigation, an officer “familiar with Peer to Peer (P2P) file sharing” used the network BitTorrent to “conduct undercover investigations into the internet sharing of child pornography” Oct. 13. The investigating officer downloaded six compressed files containing 213 images which were allegedly uploaded by a single user. The officer recorded an IP address of the user who was “openly sharing (the files) on the BitTorrent network.” In the affidavit, police described one of the files as containing images of a 10-year-old girl.

    Police found out the IP address belonged to a Verizon customer and, after being served with a court order, the company reportedly identified Hamilton as the “subscriber” who used the address. On Nov. 27, police executed a search warrant at the apartment tied to [Kenneth Ford] Hamilton, the affidavit said, seizing a desktop computer, a hard disk drive, two USB thumb drives and a CD. “The defendant was present for the search warrant,” the affidavit said.

    “The defendant agreed to an interview. He related that he had seen child pornography images on his computer. Hamilton further related that he has sought out images of child pornography for the purposes of his own sexual arousal.” Hamilton also allegedly told police that he downloaded the pornography using BitTorrent and transferred it to thumb drives. He said “it was his habit to delete his pornography after viewing it,” police said. The pornography, including images and video, allegedly recovered from Hamilton’s computer depicted boys and girls from 5 years up to 12 in sexual acts.
