Richard Hall, 61 of Marshfield, Massachusetts was arrested two days ago by Marshfield Police. It was reported that the police were notified by authorities in Illinois that Hall might be a part of a child pornography ring. This operation possibly consisted of chat room members who shared Child Porngraphy files over the internet. With this information local law enforcement obtained a search warrant. Armed with this Search Warrant they entered Hall’s Forest Street home around 9:30 Monday night. They located pictures of children engaged in sexual acts. They also seized several computer hard drives. Bail was set in the Plymouth District Court at three thousand dollars. Hall faces charges of Distributing Photographic Material of Children in a Nude State, Possessing Child Pornography and Distribution of Material Depicting Children in a Sexual Act. This case will probably be prosecuted in the Plymouth County Superior Court in Brockton.
