LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man was arrested Tuesday night after Kentucky State Police say child pornography was found on electronic devices in his home.
According to an arrest report, police were conducting an undercover investigation when nine child pornography files were distributed from an Internet account linked to the home of 35-year-old Jason Koerner on Crocket Drive, near the intersection of Lower Hunters Trace and Greenbelt Highway.
Police say they executed a search warrant at the home, and found electronic devices with "numerous files" with names indicative of child pornography.
According to the arrest report, a KSP trooper looked at 11 of the files and discovered that they were, in fact, examples of child pornography.
Koerner was arrested and charged with nine counts of distribution of matter portraying the sexual performance of a minor and 11 counts of possession of matter portraying the sexual performance of a minor.
He pleaded not guilty before a judge Wednesday morning, and the judge doubled his bond. His bond was initially set at $25,000, but the judge raised it to $50,000 cash.
The judge also ordered him to have no access to a computer or be around children.
