Court documents say 43-year-old Stuart Aaron Burgess was found distributing child pornography using peer-to-peer file-sharing software.

A forensic analysis showed he had more than 11,000 images and videos of children engaging in sexually-explicit conduct after law enforcement seized Burgess’ computer.

Records state that a significant percentage of those files depicted the abuse of infants and toddlers.
