The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force was developed federally in 1998 as the number of children and teenagers using the internet increased and child sexual abuse images became available electronically, authorities say.

Scott Terry, 50, has been charged with 40 felony counts of possession of child pornography after detectives found more than 500 images of child porn on his computer, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office.

Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office said they arrested Terry earlier this week after receiving information that his IP address was used to download hundreds of images of child porn.

Detectives executed a search warrant on Terry’s home in Venice on July 1.

Deputies say Terry admitted to downloading and viewing the child pornography.

Terry remains in the Sarasota County jail without bond as the investigation continues.
