MCCORDSVILLE — A McCordsville man who police say downloaded child pornography from the internet faces a felony charge, court records state.
Investigators say David Glotfelty, 27, 8872 Coldwater Circle, regularly searched the Web for lewd videos and images of young children, then downloaded the material to his computer, according to charging documents filed last week in Hancock County Superior Court 1.
Glotfelty faces a single Level 5 felony count of possession of child pornography, records show. He was arrested Thursday and has been released from the Hancock County Jail on bond.
He pleaded not guilty on Friday to the charge.
A Carmel officer assigned to the Hamilton County Metro Child Exploitation Task Force led the investigation, court documents show.
Officers with the Carmel Police Department tracked Glotfelty down and searched his McCordsville home and electronics for evidence last week, officials said.
Glotfelty told investigators he’d searched the internet for the videos and downloaded them onto his laptop using a file-sharing program, according to court documents. The child exploitation task force monitors traffic on internet-based file-sharing programs to track suspected child predators and those who transmit images of child pornography, officials said.
Investigators found dozens of videos on Glotfelty’s laptop, court documents state. Glotfelty directed investigators to a folder on the desktop on his desktop, where he said he saved video files, police said.
The Level 5 felony count Glotfelty faces carries a maximum penalty of six years in prison.
Glotfelty returns to Superior Court 1 for a hearing on July 19, records show. A trial date has not yet been set.
