EAST STROUDSBURG -- A man from Monroe County is facing child pornography charges.

Police say a search of computers and cell phones belonging to Erik Decker, 21, of East Stroudsburg, turned up nearly 50 sexual images of children as young as five years old.

Investigators said Decker shared the pornography online.

Decker was charged Monday with one count of disseminating child pornography, 49 counts of possessing child pornography, and one count of criminal use of a communication facility.

He is locked up in the Monroe County jail.

    Why are the sick bastards living in PA? And how stupid can they be? Any time you download anything it leaves a trail. So thanks to local law enforcement for catching these pervs.


    WOW, what a fall. From Pro Bowl wide receiver to this. Hope he gets the guidance and counseling he needs and the love and support from his teammates.

    Could be mistake.
    Last year, I posted some pics of my junk on Craigslist. For the ladies you know.
    Anyway I was accused of child pornography.
    I was eventually cleared of the charges.
    It could happen to anyone.

    Putrid, sick, and abnormal. I always wonder, where are the poor lost souls who are in these videos? Are they ever found and rescued? Is arresting the Pedophile the end of the police investigation, or do they actively go out and try to find out who these kids are and where the films are being made.
    The Death Penalty should be imposed on convicted child molesters and pedophiles. It’s the only way to stop the insanity.

      Think Positive, pedophiles cannot be rehabilitated, cured, managed, or changed of their specific appetites. It’s just what they are. If the Legal System cannot rid society of them via execution, then (typed this on another response) they should be left on some atoll out in the middle fo the Pacific Ocean with a handful of vegetable seeds to either live or die by their own efforts. No guards. No segregation. No three hots-and-a-cot. No free medical, dental, or mental on the taxpayer’s dime. No shelter. No clothing. No cigarettes. Only what they wear on their backs and feet, and a handful of vegetable seeds.

      This would, by far, be the more fitting punishment because they wouldn’t have the time to relive their fantasies and “like and share” new and creative means to obtain imagery and troll for their own victims. They would be too busy surviving to spend time indulging their perversions. What a desperate life that would be, indeed, to spend every moment in survival-mode.

    I am just flabbergasted by the incredible stupidity of pedophiles. Do they not realize that their internet traffic can be traced very easily? Do they NOT realize that, once they’ve been branded as a kiddie-creepy, they’ll not be able to sit down throughout their entire prison sentence? Of course, they don’t care that their interests involve the destruction of innocent children, but I cannot fathom this foolish perception that they are, somehow, undetectable.

    Nothing is a secret, anymore. Even Sandusky was caught, despite the best efforts of Penn State Staff and Board Members. It all comes out in the wash. eugh
