Doyle, of Eddystone, is charged with child pornography possession, corruption of minors and criminal use of communication facility, all felony charges, the release said.

In early August, detectives from the Delaware County Criminal Investigation and PA Internet Crime Against Children Task Force along with Cpl. Michael Fegley, of the Pennsylvania State Police, executed a search warrant at Doyle’s Saville Avenue home.

Doyle reportedly told detectives that he was the only one who uses the computers and that he uses the installed file sharing network for hacking tools. A forensic analysis of the computers by authorities located four videos and 46 images of child pornography.

Skype messages were also found between Doyle and a 16-year-old girl. According to the report, Doyle was aware of her age, but still asked her to send him naked images of herself. The messages also indicated that Doyle was attempting to use a webcam program to trick the people into thinking they were communicating with someone else.

Further forensic analysis showed Doyle has a pattern of doing this over an extended period of time, including the day he was arrested. He later confessed to detectives that he is attracted to minors including 14-year-old girls, the press release said.

"This arrest is yet another reminder to parents about the dangers of the Internet and its continual use by perpetrators. Our detectives with the ICAC Task Force are actively working protect our children and apprehend these individuals," Whelan said.

Doyle was remanded to the Delaware County Prison after he failed to post bail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for September 19.
