Leesburg man charged with distributing child porn

WASHINGTON — After a six-month investigation, a Leesburg, Virginia, man was charged with 50 counts of distribution of child porn.

Claude J. Church Jr., 23, was taken into custody Thursday after law enforcement officials, including the FBI and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, investigated his online activities, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office said.

In May, law enforcement officials carried out a search warrant at his home and found hundreds of child porn images on electronic devices there.

Church is held on no bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.
