COLUMBIA — A 20-year-old Columbia woman turned herself in to the Boone County Circuit Court on Friday on charges resulting from an investigation into the distribution of child pornography, Cyber Crimes Task Force Coordinator Andy Anderson said.
The Boone County Prosecuting Attorney's Office charged Kristen Lamb of 3001 S. Providence Road, Apartment 15-H, with one count of possession of child pornography, Anderson said.
Anderson said the suspect was released after posting a $4,500 bond.
In late October, the Boone County Sheriff's Department Cyber Crimes Task Force found a computer that was offering child pornography through a file sharing program, Anderson said. The computer was believed to be located in the Columbia area, he said.
During the investigation, the files were downloaded and found to be child pornography, Anderson said.
On Dec. 9, a court-ordered search warrant was served on Lamb's apartment where a laptop was seized, Anderson said.
On the computer, investigators found several videos containing child pornography involving pre-pubescent children between the ages of 7 and 10 years old, he said.
