Teen in court for child porn charges

PROVIDENCE, R.I (WLNE) – A teenager connected to an ongoing investigation into the distribution of child porn appeared in court on Tuesday.

19-year-old Burrillville resident, Brendan Cook was taken into custody last week after police say he convinced underaged girls to send explicit photos of themselves to him.

According to Police, they found large quantities of photos and videos.

Cook was released on personal recognizance and he will be back in court in June for a pre-arraignment trial.
