Cyber Tip Leads Sexual Assault Unit to Child Pornography

Cyber Tip Leads Sexual Assault Unit to Child Pornography

On September 15th, 2015, the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office Sexual Assault Unit (SAU) received a Cyber Tip involving depictions of minors involved in sexually explicit conduct from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC).

Detective Scott Streltzoff reviewed the tip and began investigating the origin of the uploaded images.

On September 28th, 2015, SAU detectives contacted 28-year-old Steven C. Harris Jr. and conducted an interview.  During the interview, detectives learned Harris admittedly possessed and disseminated several images which depicted minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.  After the interview, Harris was arrested and booked into the Spokane County Jail for Possessing Depictions of Minors Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct and Dealing in Depictions of Minors Engaged in Sexually Explicit Conduct.

Harris was released on September 29th, 2015 after posting a bond.

SAU detectives believe Harris may have been involved in similar illegal behavior that may not have been reported.  The Sheriff’s Office is releasing this photo of Harris and would like anyone who may have information regarding this investigation or inappropriate conduct regarding Harris to call Detective Streltzoff at 509-477-3218.
