Domestic dispute results in child porn charges

A 37-year-old man who police say downloaded child pornography on his computer turned himself in to officers Tuesday afternoon. Aharon Shoham was charged with three felony counts of possession of images depicting a child performing a sexual act. Police discovered the pornography after responding to a domestic dispute between Shoham and his wife at their home on the 1800 block of Longview Lane on Sept. 23. Shoham had left the home before police arrived. During their investigation, police learned of the downloaded material, said police Sgt. Jeffrey P. Young. Shoham also was charged with one count of domestic battery. Shoham turned himself in to police at 3 p.m. Tuesday. He was booked into the Pinellas County Jail, where he was being held without bail. His computer is being analyzed in a state forensic lab, and police say more charges could be filed after the examination is complete.

CORRECTION

Celebrate Oldsmar is scheduled for 5 to 9 p.m. Friday at R.E. Olds Park, 107 Shore Drive W. Due to an editing error, a story Tuesday included the wrong date.
