BURLINGTON, Ky. - A Northern Kentucky man facing more than 30 child pornography charges is scheduled to appear in a Boone County courtroom Wednesday morning for arraignment.
Joe Eggers, 28, was arrested on April 19 after police say they were led to Eggers’ home after a computer traced to his residence was found to be distributing illegal files.
Eggers is accused of distributing 15 child porn images and possession of at least 20 other pictures. The investigation began when detectives say they caught Eggers uploading one of those images.
Police say Eggers originally told them he found a hard drive with the pictures on a computer he found in the trash. Investigators say Eggers later confessed to downloading and sending the pictures.
Eggers is under house arrest with an electronic monitor and is scheduled to appear in court at 9 a.m.
