Last Friday, Nicholas Pislowski, Age 24, of Johnston, RI, was arrested on charges of Possession, Receipt, and Distribution of Child Pornography.

His arrest comes after a year-long investigation by Rhode Island's Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force, a multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional task force that focuses on the investigation and prosecution of Internet crimes against children and technology-facilitated child sexual exploitation. After learning a computer in Mr. Pislowski's home was being used to transfer child porn, ICAC executed a court-authorized search warrant which led to the seizure of digital evidence and Mr. Pislowski's arrest.

Pislowski was arraigned on last Friday on April 19, 2013 in US District court  before Judge Lincoln Almond. Pislowski was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond, and placed on electronic monitoring into the third party custody of his father.
