St. Pete sex offender accused of dealing in child pornography

ST. PETERSBURG — Authorities on Friday arrested a registered sex offender they say offered to transfer 100 images of child pornography to an undercover investigator.

Scott Stucky, 42, of St. Petersburg, will be booked into the Pinellas County Jail on 10 charges of child pornography possession and one count of child pornography promotion, according to a news release from the Florida Attorney General's Office.

Officials said Stucky contacted an undercover Boynton Beach investigator and offered up the porn. Boynton Beach police then contacted the St. Petersburg Police Department.

A task force team searched Stucky's home Friday and seized both a laptop and desktop computer, four hard drives, thumb drives and CDs.

According to public records, Stucky was sentenced to probation in April 2005 for lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 16.
