Dunedin man arrested on child porn charges

Posted: Updated:
DUNEDIN (FOX 13) -

A Dunedin man is behind bars for sharing child porn videos featuring young boys.

Deputies arrested 38-year-old Lawrence Lemieux at his home Tuesday. They started investigating him back in December. Authorities say he was downloading and sharing porn videos showing the underage boys.

When they showed up at this house, he confessed to the crime, deputies said.

"We're seeing more cases like this in the area and speaking for the sheriff's office, we are very diligent with following up on leads, whether they seem simple at the time or not," said Sgt. David Disano. "But we're investigating these instances to the fullest extent and trying to get these guys off the street."

Lemieux faces 10 charges for having the child porn videos and another charge for sharing them.

The sheriff's office does not believe any of the victims are local.
