Charges: Woodbury man had hundreds of child porn images on devices

He was arrested and charged with six felonies this week.

A 34-year-old Woodbury man faces eight counts of possessing child pornography after authorities say they found hundreds of child porn images on his electronic devices.

Agents with the Minnesota Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force executed a search warrant at the home of William Glenn Pinckney just before 7 a.m. Thursday, according to a news release from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA). He was arrested about 9 a.m. Thursday and booked into Washington County jail., according to online records.

The task force in May received six tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, all linked to an individual using a Google account to store child pornography, according to the BCA. Investigators identified Pinckney, and during this week's search of his home seized several electronic devices.

On the devices the task force found "hundreds" of child porn images, each depicting a different victim, the BCA said.

Pinckney was charged in Washington County with eight counts of electronic possession of child pornography, all of them felonies. Each has a maximum sentence of five years in prison and/or a fine up to $5,000 if convicted.

The criminal complaint says some of the graphic images showed girls as young as 4 years old being sexually abused.

Pinckney, in a statement to task force agents, said he did own the Google account in question and admitted to viewing porn regularly, but denied he ever downloaded or looked at child pornography.
