A Hamden man, picked up early Thursday evening by police, has been charged with sending child pornography over the Internet.
Police say Phillip Bacon, 53, of 65 Sanford St. passed an image of a young girl approximately six or seven years of age
to a police officer in Irving, Texas. Bacon has been charged with possession of child pornography. He was released on
$10,000 bond later that night.
Police say Bacon e-mailed the pornographic image as an attachment to the officer while in an America Online chat room March 7. According to Lieutenant Skip Dunham, the image featured the young girl having sexual relations with an adult male. A subpoena was served to AOL and the company supplied Bacon's information to the Irving Police on April 18. A search warrant was executed by Hamden police on Bacon's home April 21 and his computer was seized as evidence.
