Georgia man accused of trying to 'pin' porn on Pinterest

Posted: Updated:

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - A northeast Georgia man is behind bars after authorities say he tried to post child pornography on the Pinterest social media site.

The Times of Gainesville reports (http://bit.ly/1MWqhdK) that 43-year-old Keith Marcus Prosser on Monday was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography.

Hall County sheriff's Deputy Nicole Bailes said Pinterest notified the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that Prosser was attempting to "pin" images of child porn. "Pinning" involves saving items on the social media site to pages created by users.

Bailes said investigators later searched Prosser's residence and found a hard drive with images and videos of child pornography.

Hall County Jail records showed that Prosser was being held on $55,000 bond. The records do not indicate whether he has an attorney who could be contacted.
