WILMINGTON, Del.– Authorities say a Middletown-area registered sex offender has been arrested following a Delaware Child Predator Task Force investigation into the online distribution of child pornography.

According to prosecutors with the Delaware Attorney General's Office, the investigation led to detectives executing a search warrant on Thursday at a home on the 300 block of Senator Drive in Middletown. Prosecutors said that during the search, detectives seized multiple computers and other digital media devices. In addition, a person of interest, 20-year-old Kevin H. Boone, was taken to the Middletown Police Department, which authorities said assisted by providing forensic support and facilities, for further investigation. 

Prosecutors said that during a forensic preview, detectives discovered emails Boone had received and sent containing multiple files of child pornography, including a video file of an unclothed boy under the age of 10 engaged in a sex act with an adult male.

As a result of the investigation, Boone was arrested and charged with 25 counts of dealing in child pornography. He was ordered held in the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center in lieu of $250,000 secured bail.

According to prosecutors, Boone is currently a Tier II (medium-risk) sex offender following a 2010 conviction for possession of child pornography.

Boone also indicated to authorities that he was a student at Delaware Technical and Community College, prosecutors noted.
