HALIFAX -
A Halifax man faces child pornography charges after a nationwide investigation led authorities to his home.
Alex Turner, 36, 7 Holly St., pleaded innocent in Plymouth District Court to charges of distributing pictures of nude children, possession of child pornography and marijuana possession.
He was released on his promise to return to court Nov. 21.
State Police say the pictures found in Turner's home and on his computer depict a boy about 8 years old in various sex acts with men.
Police reports say Turner said he printed out the pictures and kept them in his bedroom for his own sexual gratification, although he knew it was a crime.
A cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in 2006, prompted the arrest of a Kansas City, Mo. man. That arrest led to three subsequent investigations in New Mexico and in San Bernardino and Los Gatos, Calif., as authorities followed the electronic trail of child pornography pictures sent from one suspect to the next, police reports state.
Authorities discovered a list of AOL accounts involved in the dissemination of child porn after searching a suspect's home in Los Gatos in February 2008. Police say Turner's was one of those uncovered in the search.
State Police searched Turner's home Sept. 9 and seized pictures, computers and computer files, according to police reports.
Court documents list Turner as single and working at Stop and Shop in Halifax.
His attorney, John Geary, said he is still gathering evidence and information on the investigation and could not comment.
