Busted: Merced Man, 48, Admits To Downloading Child Porn For Nearly Five Years

Posted:
MERCED, Calif. (KMPH) -

A 48-year-old Merced man was arrested Tuesday morning for possession of child pornography, the Merced Police Department said.

Detectives spent more than a year investigating Dennis Lee Kowalkowski after authorities were notified that nearly 200 files of child pornography was being downloaded to an IP address at his home.

Detectives served a search warrant at Kowalkowski's home and found a computer and three external hard rives. Child pornography was found on the computer and a search of the three external hard drives will be completed at a later time, the police department said.

Kowalkowski admitted to downloading adult pornography and child pornography to his computer for approximately five years, officials said.

He was booked into the Merced County jail for receiving and distributing child pornography.

This is the second child pornography-related arrest in Merced this week.

On Monday, police arrested 21-year-old Elith Christopher Romero for possession of child pornography.
