Carlisle man arrested for child pornography

CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) – A Cumberland County man has been arrested for child pornography.

Benjamin A. Schaeffer, 39, of Carlisle, is charged with 15 counts of possession of child pornography and one count of criminal use of a communication facility.

Attorney General Kathleen Kane’s office said an undercover investigation on a file-sharing network led agents to Schaeffer’s home in February. The agents seized several computers and Scheaffer was arrested last week based on evidence recovered from the computers.

Schaeffer waived his preliminary hearing. A formal arraignment is tentatively scheduled for June 23.
