In 2021, state police began their investigation into 22-year-old Michael Frances Little after receiving reports from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) that he had uploaded eight videos containing child porn to Google Photos, according to charges filed. Google Photos is a photo and video syncing and backup service.

The NCMEC received their information from Google on May 11, 21 and 24 of 2021.

Investigators noted they obtained a search warrant and were able to locate the videos in Little’s Google account in March. They also allegedly found an additional video of child porn that was uploaded to the same account using the same IP address that was provided by the NCMEC. It was listed as “deleted,” according to police. In total, nine videos of child porn were reportedly found associated with Little’s account.

Little was arraigned Wednesday by the Honorable District Judge David B. Inzana on a slew of felony child porn charges. He was sent to Jefferson County Prison after failing to post his $10,000 bail.
