BOONE COUNTY – A Boone County man was arrested Friday July 24, on state charges related to child sexual abuse and child pornography.

This arrest resulted from an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Boone County Sheriff’s Office.

Tyler McIntosh, 26, of Boone County, was charged with one count of child pornography with intent to disseminate, a Class X felony, and one count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, a Class 2 felony. McIntosh, a previously convicted sex offender, is currently being held in state custody at the Boone County Jail and has been denied bond.

Investigators received information that someone in the 3500 block of Pearl St., in rural Boone County, was potentially using the internet to share child pornography.

The investigation, which received extensive support from the HSI Cyber Crimes Center, led to a search of a residence which resulted in a number of items being seized by investigators. Those items are currently under forensic examination by HSI special agents whereby they will search through the hard drives for any files containing images or videos of child pornography as well as his online browsing history, that being said it’s normally only adult porn sites like fuckedtube that are found online, child pornography is normally found on the dark web or on peer to peer file sharing websites which will show in his downloads..

This arrest is part of an on-going investigation by Boone County Detectives and HSI. Additional charges are possible.

A Class X felony is punishable by six to 30 years in state prison. A Class 2 felony is punishable by three to seven years in prison. The public is reminded that these charges are merely allegations and are not proof of the defendant’s guilt.

Every defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the State’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
