Man pleads guilty to child porn charges
A Kanawha County man pleaded guilty in federal court to possession of child pornography.
Tracey E. Cooper, 38, of Dawes admitted that in December 2011 he possessed more than 600 images and videos depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit contact and the exhibition of their genitals. Some of those images involved sadistic, masochistic or violence.
Cooper said he used peer-to-peer file sharing programs Shareaza and Aires to download and share child pornography. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when sentenced in March.
