Norman man arrested on child porn charges

Ponca City Now - December 22, 2015 9:05 am

Agents with the Oklahoma Crimes Against Children Unit (ICAC) arrested a Norman man Monday on complaints of possession and distribution of child pornography.

Earlier this month, a tip came into the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about emails containing suspected child pornography sent from an AOL account to a Yahoo! account.

Search warrants for those accounts were issued and information returned from the companies identifying the IP address of those emails.

OSBI ICAC agents served a search warrant at 1519 Westfield Circle in Norman Monday morning and arrested Ethan A. Smith (d.o.b. 11/07/1989) on six counts of child pornography, six counts of distribution of child pornography, and one count of violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act. Smith was booked into the Cleveland County jail.
