      Jefferson City man arrested on child porn charges

      A Jefferson City man is in jail facing child pornography charges.

      The Boone County Sheriff??s Department Cyber Crimes Task Force started investigating 31-year-old Christopher Bickenstaff in August after tracing the download of child pornography to a home in Jefferson City.

      An investigator with the Clinton Police Department downloaded child pornography from the same computer network the following month.

      Friday morning, the Cyber Crimes Task Force along with the Jefferson City Police Department served a court ordered search warrant at the home. As a result of that search a computer was seized and evidence gathered at that time identified Bickenstaff as the suspect. He was arrested on suspicion of Promoting Child Pornography in the First Degree involving minors alleged to be under the age of 14.
