Columbia man accused of uploading child pornography to photo service

The Boone County Sheriff’s Department arrested a Columbia man Thursday on suspicion of uploading pornographic images of boys to photo sharing service Tumblr.

The department’s Cyber Crimes Task Force received a tip on July 24 from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that someone in Boone County had uploaded the images showing boys’ genitals, the task force said in a news release.

Smith went to the sheriff’s department the next day and investigators seized his cellphone, finding evidence that he had possessed child pornography, the release said.

Man falsely accused of murder freed after 13 years behind bars

BALTIMORE – Prosecutors say a Baltimore man who was convicted of murder 13 years ago was falsely accused, reports CBS Baltimore.

Lamar Johnson, 34, was freed from prison Tuesday. In 2005, Johnson was convicted of the first-degree murder of Carlos Sawyer, 31, who was gunned down in East Baltimore in 2004. But even after being sentenced to life, lawyers say Johnson always claimed his innocence and never changed his story.
