Central Delaware
Kenton man, 63, facing child porn allegations

KENTON – A 63-year-old Kenton man was held on $600,000 secured bail last week after investigation into child pornography dealing, court records said.

Paul V. Nonne, of the first block of Whitetail Run, was arrested last Thursday morning as Delaware Child Predator Task Force members executed a search warrant at his residence. The warrant authorized the seizure and examination of all electronic and digital evidence related to dealing in child pornography, according to the arrest report.

The Delaware State Police found Mr. Nonne at home at 7:20 a.m., court papers said, and he confirmed his identity and that he owned the home.

Detectives seized numerous laptop computers, iPads, cellular telephones and a black Apple iPod during the search, according to charging documents; other digital evidence was secured.

Police said the iPod was found inside a backpack in the master bedroom, and included Mr. Nonne’s employee ID lanyard connected with it, records showed. A forensic examination of the iPod detected at least 12 illegal child pornography images of girls between 12 and 14 years old, papers said, in various states of undress.

In a post-Miranda interview, papers said, Mr. Nonne said he created numerous Tagged.com accounts and email accounts to solicit nude images of underage males and females.

Investigation found that Mr. Nonne created underage personas and sent photos of others to receive pictures back, and had obtained hundreds of pictures from boys and girls, papers said.

Mr. Nonne was charged with 12 felony counts of dealing in child pornography. He was arraigned through JP Court 2 in Rehoboth Beach and held in the Delaware Department of Correction in lieu of bond.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Friday morning in the Kent County Court of Common Pleas in Dover.
