Dover – Attorney General Beau Biden’s office today announced that a Dover man has been charged with dealing in child pornography following an investigation by the Delaware Child Predator Task Force.
A Task Force investigation into the online distribution of child pornography led to a residence in the 400 block of Worchester Drive, Dover and a person of interest, 23 year-old Michael Gutierrez, a resident of the address. On August 28, 2014, investigators made contact with Gutierrez and transported him to DSP Troop #3 for further investigation and Task Force members executed a search warrant at the residence. During the search detectives recovered two laptop computers and a digital camera, and secured a cellular smartphone in Gutierrez’s possession.
A forensic examination of Gutierrez’s cell phone revealed multiple images of child pornography and he was charged with 25 counts of Dealing in Child Pornography. Gutierrez was arraigned via phone at JP Court #4 and was taken to James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in lieu of $500,000 secured bail.
