HOWELL (WWJ) – Authorities say a 44-year-old Michigan man is facing charges for his alleged involvement in an international child porn sharing website.

Dennis Fraser, of Howell, was detained after a hearing in federal court Friday where he was charged with distribution and possession of child pornography.

Authorities say Fraser shared several sexually explicit photos of underage girls on an image sharing website. Investigators were tipped off to Fraser’s alleged illegal activities by a foreign law enforcement agency.

According to the criminal complaint, ICE agents executed a search warrant on Fraser’s email account and found images of children engaging in sexually explicit conduct. A forensic search of Fraser’s personal computer revealed 211 images of child pornography and multiple link files with titles consistent with child pornography, the complaint said.

Fraser agreed to a consensual interview with agents, the complaint states, during which he denied viewing and downloading child pornography, but “admitted that he limited his contact with children because he is sexually attracted to them.”

Fraser, a registered sex offender, has a 2010 conviction for possession and distribution of child sexually abusive material, and using a computer to commit a crime.

If convicted in this case, he faces between 15 and 40 years in prison.
