Child Porn Charges Filed Against Phoenixville Man

Christopher D. Koukos allegedly sent sexually explicit pictures to an investigator he thought was a 14-year-old boy.

Editor's note: the language in this report is occasionally sexually explicit and may be offensive to some readers.

After a nearly two-year investigation involving multiple departments in two states, a 36-year-old Phoenixville man was arrested on child pornography charges on Monday.

Christopher D. Koukos, a resident of the 1900 block of Revolutionary Court in Phoenixville, was charged on February 11 with ten felony counts of child pornography and an additional charge of criminal use of a communication facility, after he allegedly sent pictures of his penis to an investigator who was posing as a 14-year-old boy in a chat room.

According to court documents, on March 3 of 2011, an investigator with the Page County (Virginia) Sheriffs Department created an undercover account in an Internet chat room, posing as a 14-year-old boy. Between March 3 and August 11 of that year, the investigator communicated with Koukos about sexual acts involving 14-year-old boys and Koukos. During this time Koukos allegedly sent two pictures of his penis to the investigator.

On April 22 of 2011, the investigator used a court order to get Koukos’ home address from Comcast, then confirmed the information with East Pikeland Police in September. At this time the Virginia investigator informed Chester County Detectives of the case.

Based on this evidence, a search warrant was obtained, and on October 13 of 2011 it was served at Koukos’ 1943 Revolutionary Court home. Investigators seized a Macbook laptop, a desktop, and three external hard drives. During the search, Koukos consented to an interview with investigators and admitted to sending the pictures of his penis.

During the computer forensics examination of the seized materials, investigators found in excess of ten images of nude children posing or performing sexual acts and unearthed evidence that Koukos had engaged in chats with additional children regarding pornography and/or sexual acts.

Koukos was charged on February 11 and after a brief confinement, was released from Chester County Prison after posting 10 percent of the $75,000 bail. He faces preliminary hearing on February 21.

Terms of use? How about you publish the truth about allegations which were lies and sensationalized on the patch! "Man beat woman on drive home from appointment". You have destroyed the reputation of a very good person!

Nice try harry. You are the pedophile enabler. If I ever knew someone to be a pedophile, like you admitted to being, I would bury them in my back yard and piss on the dirt. You, conveniently keep your mouth shut and flee the town so you can stalk children with a clear record....enjoy Mexico peeedy

Christopher should have waited another month, and he could have been a Boy Scout leader.
Douglas J. Trainor February 14, 2013 at 01:51 PM
John Q. Public, why are you intentionally confusing child pornography with a workplace sexual orientation issue? They have nothing to do with each other. The Boy Scouts are also allowing female leaders too.
John February 14, 2013 at 02:25 PM
HEy, Pedophile, stop trying to push your sickness on other people. You are a sick-o who likes to stalk and sleep with children. That is why you went to the other side of the country but still monitor the police blog of a place, 40 years later. once you started seeing priest go away decades after their crimes, you got scared.... so glad your sick 'boy lovin' ass is out of here.... sick freak.

Still looking for those magic words 'Police believe an accomplice is out there'.... I will direct them right to this site and they can finally open up the investigation on Harry and get him out of here.... only a matter of time.

Homosexual men camping with little boys is a 'workplace sexual orientation issue?' I wouldn't be so explicit, but you are probably correct.
Church Streeter February 14, 2013 at 03:52 PM
JQP, you're a f'ing idiot. Gay guys are no more likely to want to bang a little boys, than straight men are likely to want to bang little girls. Pedophiles are pedophiles. Orientation has nothing to do with. Moron.

I'm sure Harry will be able to enlighten some of you on Pedophilia...being that he has already ADMITTED to harboring and enabling a pedophile.

Scout leaders are volunteers.....not employed by the scouts......only Nat'l BSA are employees......this protected the BSA for many years.
