MARGATE (CBS4) – A Margate man accused of thirty counts of possession of child pornography and one count of compiling computer pornography, appeared in bond court for the first time today.

Cary Aaronson’s bond is set at 301 thousand dollars after members of the South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) executed a search warrant at 895 SW 50th Terrace early Thursday morning.

They questioned Aaronson and removed computers, cell phones, digital cameras and DVD’s.

In a specially equipped van they scan the material for evidence of trafficking in computer child porn.  Investigators report finding 500 images and video files depicting child pornography. Investigators say the videos depict primarily female children under 8 engaging in various sexual acts with adults and other children.

According to the arrest affidavit, Aaronson took full responsibility for the collection of the porn and stated he attempted to stop his active collecting of child porn on several occasions but would ultimately give in to his urge.

He told investigators no one else in his home was involved in the process.

“It takes a few months to put these cases together.  To watch these predators move the files back and forth through public software systems,” said Sgt. Giuseppe Weller of the Broward Sheriff’s Office.

While Aaronson was ‘not’ charged with ‘creating’ child porn, investigators say he helps feed an industry that sometimes leads to child prostitution and human trafficking.

“So many of these individuals need to get out and we need to help them get out of that life so they can live a normal life,” said Nancy McBride of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
