Medford man arrested for allegedly sharing child porn

MEDFORD, Ore. – A local man was arrested for allegedly sharing child pornography online.

The Medford Police Department said in August of 2019, they started an investigation into a local resident who was sharing child porn on the internet. Investigators added they don’t believe any of the children are from the Medford area.
