Authorities with the Ferguson Township Police Department say a State College man is facing over a dozen felony counts related to the possession of child pornography.
Police say Charles Payton, 56, is accused of uploading numerous images of child porn to the social media messaging app “Kik.”
According to the affidavit, authorities say the images included multiple young children engaged in sexual acts or sexually suggestive poses.
Police say Payton allegedly uploaded and viewed the images under an assumed identity, “Ted Nord.”
Investigators say the account was traced to an IP address in State College that belonged to Payton.
Payton was arraigned Wednesday morning on charges of disseminating photos/video of child sex acts and child pornography, according to online court documents.
He has since been released on unsecured bail.
