Liberty High School student arrested for child pornography

The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office arrested a teenager at Liberty High School on Thursday after he was found to possess child pornography.

Deputies arrested 18-year-old Jonah Price and charged him with 10 counts of possession of a photo of sexual performance by a child.

On Tuesday, detectives with the Sheriff's Office Internet Crimes Against Children Unit served a search warrant at a Somerset Circle home in Kissimmee, after they received a cyber-tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in reference to child pornography.

 A forensic analysis of the electronics seized during the search warrant revealed numerous child pornography files. An arrest warrant was obtained Price and he was arrested at Liberty High, where he goes to school.

Sheriff’s Office officials said they encourage anyone with information concerning any threats, acts or possession of materials that are harmful toward children, to call the law enforcement agency, or Crimeline at 1-800-423-8477, where information leading to a felony arrest may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
