Student facing child porn charges

NEW CASTLE — A Slippery Rock University student has been accused of online sharing, downloading and distribution of child pornography.

Attorney General Kathleen G. said yesterday that Josiah David Krammes, 22, of Slippery Rock was charged with three counts of distribution of child pornography, five counts of possession and one count of illegal use of a communications facility.

The investigation was a statewide operation involving agents from two regions within the Attorney General’s Child Predator Section. Investigators said Krammes used a laptop to distribute the images and recently moved back to the university from his family home in Schuylkill County.

Krammes was arraigned and bond was set at $50,000 cash. Krammes is forbidden from having contact with minors and using the Internet.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 14 before Slippery Rock District Judge Timothy Shaffer.

The Slippery Rock and Pine Grove police departments also assisted.
