A Sand Springs teenager is behind bars, accused of downloading child pornography on to his home computer.

Robert Sternke, 18, was arrested early Wednesday morning at his Sand Springs home.

According to the police report, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force was investigating the sharing of child pornography files and identified an IP address belonging to Sternke as downloading several files.

Investigators went to the home on Tuesday and spoke with Sternke.

According to the arrest report, Sternke told investigators that he knew what they were after and that he did not want to get his family involved.  He reportedly directed investigators to his computers.

Investigators seized several computers and hard drives, along with a small bag of marijuana.

Sternke is being held on four possession of child pornography complaints and one complaint each of possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.  He has a $40,500 bond.

see what this country is coming 2...arresting people for even looking at people their own age..in a non-religiously approved way..this law was NEVER intended for such abuse...kids r gonna look at other kids get over it....porn never realy has been the problem..the law was created to try and find and stop someone who would do something..not some 18yo who's whacking his meat...where's the parent activist this is still a child afterall..laws arent supposed to hurt the people they are meant to protect..the whole arguement with the moms against in court getting these laws put in place was based on the idea that watching the porn was directly related to stat rape.....which is exactly like saying watching any kind of porn is directly related to someone raping someone else...there's 40yo virgins irl....i'm sure they've seen porn @ 1 point or another...n their still a virgin...so the whle point validating the law is void...then your gonna turn and use it on a kid....1 it was supposed to protect..what a FAIL of a law...
