A 24-year-old man from Florida, United States was jailed after he turned himself to the authorities for downloading child pornography on his phone.

Cory Hinsch was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of obscene material on Nov. 9, as reported by the Pensacola News Journal on Thursday, Nov. 15. He was booked into Escambia County Jail and was later released on Tuesday, Nov. 13 on a $10,000 (around P525,000) bond.

Hinsch walked into the Pensacola Police Department on Nov. 9. He told a front desk police officer that he should be arrested because he has child pornography on his phone.

To prove his point, he showed the police officer a picture of an underaged girl engaged in sexual acts.

FEATURED STORIES

He was immediately taken by the authorities, the report said. When his Miranda rights were read, he said that he wanted to give a statement without the presence of an attorney.

He told the authorities he downloaded the material from the “dark web,” as per the publication. The “dark web” is the part of the World Wide Web which is not indexed by web search engines and where sites for illegal transactions are said to exist. After letting the authorities look at his phone, they were able to find two photos of child porn.

In January this year, Hinsch was incarcerated for a hit-and-run charge. He was released on a $2,500 bond (about P131,000). Kate Matriano/JB
