A 23-year-old Rock Island man has been arrested on charges he watched online videos of a 13-year-old girl having sex with a man.

Scott D. Sparkman, 1600 18th Ave., is charged with four felony counts of aggravated possession of child pornography.

“We got an Internet-based alert,” Rock Island Deputy Police Chief Jason Foy said Wednesday. “That’s how we discovered it.”

Sparkman looked at the videos on his home computer on four occasions in 2012, court records state. The videos were described in records as “lewd” and showing the girl and the man engaging in various sex acts.

Police arrested Sparkman on a warrant Monday.

That young man is creating the market for the people producing and victimizes the children. If they catch the producers throw them in prison too.... or worse.

I agree that this man should not be watching child pornography...however, should the crime be focused on the person who posted the video or than man having sex with the 13 year old?? What a waste of tax dollars and ruining a young mans life.
