Mercer Co. man charged with downloading child porn

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WYTV) – Attorney General Kathleen G. Kane announced Friday the arrests of six men suspected of being child predators, including one from Mercer County.

According to a criminal complaint, investigators identified the computer of Justin Patrick Conway of Mercer County as the source for several files with pornographic depictions of underage children.

A search of Conway’s Hermitage apartment resulted in the seizure of a computer and multiple media storage devices, which upon initial viewing, were found to contain more than 100 files of suspected child pornography, including images of children as young as 6 years old engaged in graphic sexual poses.

Conway is charged with four counts of distribution of child pornography, nine counts of possession of child pornography and one count of criminal use of a communication facility.

Conway was one of six suspected child predators arrested recently in Pennsylvania. The other five are:

  • Thomas Cunningham, 38, 25 S. Eastview Ave., Lower Southampton, Bucks County;
  • Jeffery Lenda, 20, 4002 Hoyt St., Erie, Erie County;
  • William Warnick, 41, 119 Cagwin St., Pittsburgh, Allegheny County;
  • Albert Aldham, 74, 129 Maple Ridge Dr., Hawley, Pike County;
  • David Mason, 28, 803 Pierce St., East Norriton, Montgomery County.
