Fargo man facing 13 felony charges related to child porn

FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live): A Fargo man faces 13 child porn related charges after agents found dozens upon dozens of disturbing videos at his Broadway apartment.

Christopher Colwell faces 13 felony charges. Court documents say BCI agents tracked child porn back to his IP address through peer to peer file sharing programs. Videos attached to that computer’s address include a 15+ minute video of a teenage girl, a 5+ minute video showing a 12 year old girl, a 3+ minute video depicting a girl believed to be between 6-8 years old, a one minute video showing a 4 year old girl, and an image depicting a child of less than 1 year old among others.

Officers raided Colwell’s apartment on Wednesday, and he was present when they showed up. Court documents say Colwell admitted to knowingly downloading the child pornography files, adding that he knew “he had a problem with child pornography and had tried to stop but kept going.”

Christopher Colwell has a court appearance scheduled for mid-June.
