Providence man arrested in child porn bust

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A Providence man was arrested Friday morning after investigators say they found child pornography on his computer.

Danilo Taveras, 53, is charged with possession and transfer of child pornography.

During an undercover investigation, members of the Rhode Island State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force identified suspected child porn being shared on the Internet connection at Taveras’ Suffolk Street home.

Investigators executed a search warrant at the home Friday morning and arrested Taveras.

If convicted on both charges, Taveras could face a maximum sentenced of 20 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
