MIDDLESBORO, Ky. (WATE) - Kentucky State Police arrested a Middlesboro man last week on charges relating to child pornography. Police say most of the images depicted sexual abuse of children under the age of 10.

Claude Robinson, 63, is charged with 20 counts of distribution of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor - first offense and five counts of possession of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor.

KSP says the arrest was the result of an ongoing Internet Crimes Against Children investigation by the KSP Electronic Crime Branch.

Detectives started investigating in October 2013 after discovering a suspect sharing images of child sexual exploitation online. The majority of the images depicted the sexual abuse of children who were less than 10 years of age.

Robinson was arrested after officers executed a search warrant at his Middlesboro home.

He is being held at the Bell County Detention center on $50,000 bond. A full forensic examination of the evidence is pending.
