TRF man charged with possession of child porn

A Thief River Falls man was charged in June with felony possession of child pornography. About 56 suspected images and/or videos of suspected child pornography were allegedly found on his computer.

Justin Tyler Ramsey, 20, appeared in Pennington County District Court on Monday, Sept. 9. At that time, Judge Donald Aandal entered a not guilty plea for Ramsey as he plans to apply for a public defender. Ramsey’s next court appearance is scheduled Thursday, Oct. 10.

The charge stems from a December 2011 investigation by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. At that time, a special agent used a software program to identify Internet Provider addresses that allegedly browsed or downloaded suspected child pornography files. The information was provided by investigators from International Crimes Against Children.

Two of the IP addresses were registered to Sjoberg’s Cable, which was then subpoenaed to provide subscriber information. Ramsey was the subscriber. Both of the IP addresses allegedly contained a partial download of a suspected child pornography video.

On Feb. 23, 2012, a search warrant was conducted at Ramsey’s home. However, it was learned that he had recently moved out and resided with his parents. The occupant said Ramsey previously had computers at the home and had paid for Internet service there. The man said he didn’t own any computers and allowed law enforcement to search the home.

Two days later, law enforcement spoke with Ramsey. He allegedly admitted that he searched for pornographic-related images involving teenagers under the age of 18. Ramsey said it was quite possible that a computer contained several files or videos containing images related to child pornography.

A search warrant was executed for at least one of the computers. About 56 suspected images and/or videos related to child pornography were contained and/or stored in the hard drive. The investigator found an identification number that linked the computer to the information provided by the BCA. The videos had been created, accessed or modified as early as mid September 2011 and as late as Jan. 9, 2012.
