Man indicted on multiple child pornography charges

Posted: Updated:
Frankfort, KY. (WDRB) - Attorney General Jack Conway announced Monday the indictment of a Louisville man following an investigation by his Cybercrimes Branch.

Kerry Trinkle, 62, was indicted by a Jefferson County grand jury Dec. 18 on four counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and four counts of distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.
 
A search warrant was executed at Trinkle's Louisville business, Jackson TV & Electronics, on Sept. 13, following an investigation that was started in August by General Conway's Cybercrimes investigators. A forensic exam on computers taken from Trinkle's business discovered more than 13,000 images depicting the sexual abuse of children.
 
Possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor are Class D felonies. Each count is punishable by one to five years in prison.

Trinkle appeared before a judge Monday afternoon and pleaded not guilty. His next court date is set for February.
