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.
