Punxsutawney man faces child pornography charges after 11 illegal videos are found

PUNXSUTAWNEY– Child pornography charges have been filed against a 27-year-old Punxsutawney man after 11 illegal videos were found on his phone.

State Police started investigating Charles Ferguson in July 2021 when his girlfriend reported that she had found a video of her young daughter naked on his phone.

The woman also accused Ferguson of hiding a video camera in the bathroom.

Following an analysis of Ferguson’s phone by the State Police Computer Crimes Lab, the child porn videos were discovered, and charges were filed last week.

Ferguson currently awaits a preliminary hearing.
