24-year-old in Michigan arrested for child porn

Michigan

DETROIT, Mich. (WLNS) – A 24-year-old was arrested earlier this week for the production, distribution and possession of child porn.

Nathanal Pace of Detroit was arraigned yesterday on three counts of production of child sexually abusive material, distribution of child sexually abusive material and possession of child sexually abusive material.

The Michigan State Police became aware of Pace having and sharing child porn online in November. After an investigation and search warrant at his home, they found several items seized as evidence which showed Pace was producing child porn.

He has been turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals and scheduled for a hearing today. The investigation is ongoing and additional charges are expected.

Homeland Security Investigations will continue to fight child sexual exploitation as one of its highest priorities and aggressively target those who produce and distribute this kind of horrific material that traumatizes victims for the rest of their lives
