Man charged with sharing child pornography in connection with viral video

Meanwhile, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office in MI announced Monday evening Moore is facing multiple charges in Detroit, including four counts of criminal sexual conduct. Authorities say the video depicts the sexual exploitation of a child.

Police in several jurisdictions has since issued warnings to the public to report the video to Facebook and delete it - not sharing it for any reason.

The man police say videoed himself performing sex acts with a young girl - then posted it on Facebook - is behind bars. Investigators say she is not cooperating with police.

She said she couldn't say whether the victim in the video was under Moore's care or whether the victim was related to him.

"In my years of experience in dealing with these types of cases, even though we're looking at these three victims, I believe that we will probably find that there are additional victims", Craig said.

Alabama authorities are trying to determine when and where the viral video was taken, and who first shared it to social media.

"People should never download, save or share illicit photos or videos depicting child pornography".

An Alabama man is behind bars after a viral child pornography video he's reportedly connected with resulted in Federal Bureau of Investigation involvement and a nationwide search for him.

Detroit prosecutors haven't made clear if any of those charges are connected with the viral video that led to Moore's arrest.

Another man named Jerrell Washington, 42, was also charged with distributing the video.

The Paducah Police Department says it wants to alert you about a video being shared on Facebook that could land you with felony charges if you share it.
