LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 24-year-old Las Vegas police officer made an initial court appearance on felony child pornography charges that could put him in prison for up to 45 years and cost him his job.

Ruben Delgadillo said nothing as he stood in shackles in court Wednesday for the brief hearing.

He remains jailed pending a preliminary hearing Aug. 31 on five charges of unlawful visual presentation depicting sexual conduct of a person under 16, and one count of distribution of pornography involving a minor.

Delgadillo’s defense attorney, Joshua Tomsheck, declined outside court to comment.

Police say Delgadillo was identified through an internet address as a user of peer-to-peer software used to exchange files depicting sex involving young children.

Police say Delgadillo has been suspended. He’s been an officer since July 2015.

    I’m sorry but I keep failing to see why anyone needs to know this. Let me elaborate:

    1) he is charged and not yet found guilt so we impact the life of a man before knowing the truth.
    2) there is nothing actionable in this news. What it generates is doubts and fear and not hope or a sense of justice.
    3) there is no analysis of what brings a man to watch child pornography, how this happens and what the life of a person with this deviance is so basically we don’t generate compassion and understanding but hate and disgust. Who does that serve?

    So in a nutshell this is voyeurism for sad people that spend money earned by sad people.
