Pinellas Park man arrested on child porn charges

PINELLAS PARK — A man was accused Thursday of downloading child pornography videos at his Pinellas Park home, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

In November, detectives with the sheriff's Crimes Against Children unit received information that Martin Lewis, 59, was downloading the videos at 6209 62nd St. N, deputies said. Authorities carried out a search warrant in January, seizing evidence that Lewis downloaded videos depicting girls ages 6 to 10 engaging in sexual activity, deputies said.

He was arrested Thursday and booked on five counts of sexual performance by a child. He was later released on $25,000 bail.
