According to the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office, the charges came after Internet Crimes Against Children sent a tip to Dayton police that Pugh’s IP address and email address were downloading child pornography.

Internet Crimes Against Children is a network of 61 task forces across local, state and national law enforcement agencies focusing on crimes that affect children online, according to the force’s website.

Pugh is not currently in custody, but is scheduled to be arraigned on Dec. 8.
