Brooklyn man to face child porn charges

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A Brooklyn man has been charged with distribution of child pornography for allegedly sending child porn images to a minor.

Authorities say 24-year-old Kyle Michael Kirby assumed an identity in September and attempted to distribute a sexually explicit photo of a teenage girl to a teenage boy.

The U.S. attorney's office says Kirby met the boy on the Internet social networking site Facebook.

Kirby made an initial appearance in court on Monday and a detention hearing was held the following day. He was placed on home detention with electronic monitoring.

A trial date hasn't been set.
