Largo man arrested on child porn charges

LARGO — A 30-year-old Largo man is facing child pornography charges after Largo police detectives were able to download child porn images from his computer using a file-sharing program, authorities said.

Mark Edward LaPointe was arrested Monday afternoon at his home, 5113 Imperial Palm Drive. He has no previous arrests. He is charged with one count of promotion of child pornography, one count of transmission of child pornography, and 10 counts of possession of child pornography.

Largo detectives obtained a search warrant for LaPointe's computer, where they reported finding eight videos and eight photos featuring pornographic images of children. Some of the files were located in folders associated with a file-sharing program LaPointe was using. Police said LaPointe acknowledged that he's the one who uses the system. Then he requested a lawyer.
