Cops: Paulding man had over 80 child porn images

A 23-year-old Paulding County man was arrested after police found more than 80 images of child pornography on his computer.

Joseph Testani, of Dallas, admitted to having the pornographic images during a search of his home, according to Cpl. Brandon Gurley with the Paulding County Sheriff's Office. Testani's computer was seized after St. Petersburg, Fla., police contacted Paulding police, Gurley said.

Typically in cases such as this one, investigators focus on images of pre-pubescent children, Gurley told the AJC.

Testani has been charged with sexual exploitation of children for possessing and distributing child pornography, police said. Additional charges are expected.

Testani remains in the Paulding County jail, where he is being held without bond.
