A Floyd County man has been arrested on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography.
Kenneth Lewis, 49, of Prestonsburg was charged Thursday with one count each of possession or viewing of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and one count of distribution, according to Attorney General Andy Beshear’s office.
“The arrest of Lewis was the result of a three-week undercover investigation by the Cyber Crimes Unit,” a news release said.
Beshear’s cybercrimes initiative led to 80 arrests, indictments and convictions of online child predators last year, according to the news release.
