A Woodford County man was arrested on charges related to child pornography, after Kentucky State Police say they discovered nude photographs and videos of a local teenage girl on his computer.

Nathan G. Coleman, 37, of Versailles, was arrested in Pike County as the result of an ongoing undercover Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) investigation by the KSP Electronic Crime Branch.

KSP began the investigation in January after they discovered someone sharing images of child sexual exploitation online. The investigation resulted in the execution of a search warrant for a residence in Versailles on March 26. During the search, computer-related equipment was seized and taken to the KSP forensic lab in Frankfort for examination. Forensic examiners say they located sexually explicit images of prepubescent children as well as nude photos and videos of a girl who appeared to be from Kentucky. Through further investigation, KSP detectives located and identified the teenage girl depicted in the images.

Coleman was arrested at a relative’s home in Pike County and charged with 78 counts of possession of matter portraying sexual performance by a minor, as well as seven counts of distribution of matter portraying sexual performance by a minor. KSP is continuing to investigate and additional charges are pending.
