Watertown Teen Charged With Possessing Child Pornagraphy

(Watertown) A Watertown teen was charged Tuesday with possessing illegal images of children. Mitchell Roeglin is facing seven felony counts of Child Pornography. Last September, the social networking site Tumblr generated a CyberTip with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. According to the criminal complaint, the tip led authorities to Roeglin’s home. A search warrant was executed and Roeglin’s tablet and cellphone were taken. When questioned, Roeglin allegedly admitted to receiving and transmitting illicit images of children and posting them to his blog. The 18-year-old reportedly said that the content of his blog was (quote) “not suitable for anyone” and that “it was bad.” A forensic examination of the devices allegedly found multiple images of child porn. If convicted, Roeglin faces over 25 years in prison. An initial appearance is scheduled for October 12th.
