COLUMBIA — A Columbia man remained at the Boone County Jail on Monday after investigators arrested him on suspicion of promoting and possessing child pornography.

Sean M. Quick, 26, of 1133 Ashland Road was the subject of a four-month investigation by the Mid-Missouri Internet Crimes Task Force. He was arrested Friday.

Investigators found that between Aug. 2 and Aug. 10, Quick offered child pornography video files through Gnutella, a file-sharing program, Boone County Sheriff’s Detective Tracy Perkins said in a probable cause affidavit. The investigation began Sept. 7, when the task force received Missouri Internet provider addresses from peer-to-peer file-sharing investigations.

On Dec. 3, the task force seized Quick’s computer. He told detectives he downloaded child pornography in August and deleted the images, Perkins said in the affidavit.

Investigators found four videos of minors located in a shared folder on Quick’s computer, Perkins said. Two videos depicted children under the age of 14 engaging in sexual conduct. Two more videos depicted children engaging in sexual conduct.

“In addition, numerous images and videos depicting children under the age of fourteen engaged in sexual conduct were located in other areas on the suspect’s computer,” Perkins said in the affidavit.

Quick faces one count of promoting child pornography and two counts of possession of child pornography. His bond was set at $30,000 with a condition that he not have contact with persons under the age of 17 or access the Internet.
