Twin Tiers (WENY) - A Dryden man behind bars in connection with a child pornography scandal. Federal authorities have brought pornography charges of their own against 67 year-old Paul Magnum Sr.
An affidavit filed by a state computer crimes investigator said Magnum uploaded images of possible child porn on Yahoo's Flicker site. Some of the images showed sexual abuse of a sleeping child.
The uploads were traced to a computer in Freeville. Federal and state law enforcement got a search warrant and both the 11 year-old victim and Magnum were found. Mangum was first charged with state-level felony child pornography charges. Tuesday he was charged with producing child porn under a federal law forbidding transmission of child pornography across states.
