Pinellas Park man accused of sharing child porn

A 22-year-old Pinellas Park man was arrested early Wednesday after deputies said they searched his home and found child pornography on his computer.

A three-month undercover internet investigation led authorities to Aaron Barnhart, of 6004 109th Ave. N, who was sharing the illegal videos online, Pinellas County Sheriff's deputies said.

Deputies with a search warrant swept Barnhart's home at about 6:30 a.m. and discovered the lewd images on his computer, according to the Sheriff's Office. Barnhart admitted to downloading and sharing the pornography, deputies said.

Barnhart was charged with 11 counts of possession of child pornography and one count of promotion of child pornography. He remained in the Pinellas County Jail on Wednesday in lieu of $130,000 bail.
