Sheriff Issues Warning About Facebook Video Depicting Child Pornography

posted February 5, 2018 7:43 PM

As we reported on Monday afternoon, the Newberry County Sheriff’s has received reports of a video being

shared through “Facebook” that depicts what appears to be child pornography with a very young child engaged

in a sexual act with an adult male. This video surfaced and has gone viral in a short period of time.

 

This video is typically shared through messenger and the reason listed is so that the perpetrator is caught. The

problem with sharing this video is that every time this video is shared and viewed the victim is exposed to more

shame and victimization. You not only create a viral video but a viral victim.

 

Additionally, while this is done in “an attempt to locate the perpetrator” you are still possessing and disseminating

child pornography and it is illegal to possess and disseminate any images or videos that depict a juvenile child engaged in

sexual activity.

 

If your receive any image or video that you believe depicts child pornography, please report this immediately to the

reporting mechanism of the social media site that you are using and then contact your local law enforcement agency.

 

Facebook has launched an investigation into the video and is working with law enforcement.
