Neighbors Speak On Child Pornography Arrest

Posted: Updated:

BLADES, Del. - Investigators confiscated computers, cell phones, and digital storage devices reportedly filled with child pornography.  All this, less than a mile away from this park in Blades, Delaware, where WMDT found children playing.

33 year-old Jason Kocinec faces 15 counts of dealing in child porn, and his father faces 25counts.  The two have since been released on bail.

Neighbors say "It was shocking."

WMDT also broke the news of the arrest to a couple living near the Kocenic home.  They say this type of activity isn't a reflection of the quiet 
 
The Kocenic arrests come just months after three other Delaware men were charged with being a part of a child pornography distribution network.

Though officials say the Blades arrests are unrelated to that network.  Still, parents and community members fear for their children's safety.

"I don't even like letting them go outside, but I can't blame the kids for it," says King.
 
But attorney General Beau Biden assures families there is no place for this in Delaware saying the "Child Predator Task Force is focused on stopping this destructive and illicit trade which exploits children in Delaware and beyond."

According to the Delaware Department of Justice, the investigation is ongoing, and it could be up to 9 months before this case goes to trial.
