Local man linked to child pornography case

NEW PALESTINE — A child pornography case that originated in Texas has resulted in federal charges against a Hancock County man.

Justin Cole, 23, of New Palestine, was arrested late last week after his email account was linked to a man charged in July in Texas with distributing sexually explicit photos of children.

A search of Cole’s computers found thousands of explicit images and hundreds of videos, all involving children.

Multiple online chats discussing trading child pornography were also uncovered, charging documents state.
