Newberry Sheriff issues warning on facebook video depicting child pornography

The Newberry County Sheriff’s has received reports of a video being shared through “Facebook” that depicts what appears to be child pornography with a very young child engaged in a sexual act with an adult male. This video surfaced and has gone viral in a short period of time. 

This video is typically shared through messenger and the reason listed is so that the perpetrator is caught. The problem with sharing this video is that every time this video is shared and viewed the victim is exposed to more shame and victimization. You not only create a viral video but a viral victim. 

Additionally, while this is done in “an attempt to locate the perpetrator” you are still possessing and disseminating child pornography and it is illegal to possess and disseminate any images or videos that depict a juvenile child engaged in sexual activity. 

If your receive any image or video that you believe depicts child pornography, please rep ort this immediately to the reporting mechanism of the social media site that you are using and then contact your local law enforcement agency.

Facebook has launched an investigation into the video and is working with law enforcement.
