Pennsylvania Officer Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography Offenses

On Sept. 9 former Montgomery County Sheriff’s Officer Matthew Laver, 38, entered a plea of guilty before United States District Judge to multiple counts of distribution, receipt, and possession of child pornography. Laver was a officer in Souderton, Pennsylvania.

According to reports from NBC, Laver was indicted in March 2019 after an investigation into his collection of almost 4,000 images and videos depicting the sexual abuse of children that he downloaded and distributed to other users on the internet over approximately ten years.

The investigation revealed that Laver trafficked in child pornography that depicted children as young as infants being sexually assaulted and raped, and that he did so during the time that he was employed as a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Officer. Homeland Security Investigations special agents worked closely with law enforcement partners to further prevent this Laver from victimizing children by distributing images of sexual assault.

First Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Williams says:

“The harm caused by child exploitation is devastating and long-lasting, which is why we prosecute these cases aggressively. In this case, the conduct was particularly egregious because the defendant was a member of a law enforcement organization charged with enforcing the law. We stand ready with our federal and local partners to identify and prosecute all those who would prey upon minor children.”

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
