Falmouth Man Arrested on Child Porn Charges

Aug 27, 2014

FALMOUTH, Maine -- A sixty-three-year-old attorney was arrested at his home in Falmouth this morning by the State Police Computer Crimes Unit and charged with possessing child pornography.

Maine Public Safety Department spokesman Steve McCausland says Lawrence Winger's computer was seized earlier this month after authorities got a tip. "His computer was reviewed by the unit in the last couple of weeks and dozens of images of child porn was found on it," McCausland says.

Authorities don't believe any of the images are of children from Maine.

A person answering a phone call made to Winger had no comment.
