Lexington Man Arrested On Child Porn Charges

A Lexington man has been arrested on child porn charges following an investigation by Attorney General Jack Conway's Cybercrimes Branch.

Erik Hentzen, 25, was arrrested on March 22 on two counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor. Hentzen was released from the Fayette County Detention Center after posting a $5,000 cash bond. He'll be arraigned in Fayette District Court on March 27

In November 2012, investigators say they became aware of an unknown individual accessing an unsecured wireless connection in Lexington. Following an extensive investigation, investigators tracked the unauthorized access to Hentzen's residence in Lexington. Cybercrimes investigators uncovered suspected child pornography during the execution of a search warrant at Hentzen's home.

The investigation is ongoing, and additional charges are likely.
