Kris Zocco charged with 17 counts of child porn possession

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- 38-year-old Kris Zocco, the boyfriend of the missing Kelly Dwyer, is back in police custody. He's being charged with 17 counts of possession of child pornography. 


Earlier this month, Milwaukee police executed a search warrant on Zocco's apartment while investigating the disappearance of Kelly Dwyer. Police found several CDs and an external hard drive inside a cardboard box on the floor of Zocco's apartment.


Investigators conducted a preliminary search of these electronic items, and uncovered several videos containing child pornography. That's when police got another search warrant and returned to Zocco's apartment on October 24th.


Analysts searched all the electronic evidence gathered from Zocco's apartment, and found 23 video files containing child pornography. The ages of the child victims in these videos are as young as two or three years old. 


The criminal complaint only details 17 of these videos, because Zocco is only facing 17 counts of possession of child pornography. According to police, Zocco used the peer to peer sharing network called LimeWire to download these pornographic video files.


If convicted of all 17 counts of possession of child pornography, Zocco could face a prison sentence of up to 425 years.
