ST. PAUL — A Woodbury man has been charged with eight counts of possessing child pornography following an investigation by the Minnesota Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension leads the task force created to investigate and prosecute those who would exploit children on the Internet.
The investigation began in May when ICAC investigators received several tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that appeared to be associated with one person using a Google account to store images of child pornography. ICAC agents identified William Glenn Pinckney, 34, of Woodbury, as the account holder.
ICAC agents executed a search warrant on July 22 and seized several electronic devices at Pinckney’s residence that were found to have hundreds of files of child pornography. Each file depicts a different child victim.
Pinckney was charged in Washington County District Court with eight felonies for possession of child pornography. The criminal complaint is available here
