Warren County Man Pleads Guilty to Possession of Child Pornography

child porn arrest 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (7/8/14) — Attorney General Jack Conway announced that a Bowling Green, Ky., man has pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.

Sergio Medina, 56, pleaded guilty in Warren Circuit Court on July 3 to 11 counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

Medina was charged in this case following an undercover investigation by Attorney General Conway’s Cybercrimes Unit. A search warrant was executed in August 2013 at Medina’s Bowling Green home, where investigators seized computers containing images depicting children engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

“I am pleased that my cybercrimes investigators have helped take another child pornographer off of the Internet,” General Conway said. “Our work is making the Internet a safer place for Kentucky kids.”

Commonwealth’s Attorney Chris Cohron handled the prosecution of this case. Commonwealth’s Attorney Cohron has recommended Medina serve a six-year prison sentence. Medina will also be required to register as a sex offender for a period of 20 years. Medina is scheduled to be sentenced on July 29 at 8:30 a.m. in Warren Circuit Court.
