Anderson charged with distributing child porn

SoVaNow.com / November 04, 2010
A Halifax County man was arrested last weekend by State Police BCI Special Agent Dale Sturdivant and charged with one count of possession and distribution of items containing child pornography. Thomas Dale Anderson, 41, is being held on the charge in the local jail without bond.

According to Commonwealth’s Attorney Kim S. White, more charges may be forthcoming. The materials, she said, are still images and some DVD images. The number of charges that may be brought against Anderson will be determined by the number of computer devices used in collecting the materials.

White said no court date for a preliminary hearing for Anderson has yet been set since the case was first referred to General District Court. She has since moved to have the preliminary hearing set for Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, she said yesterday.
