BURLINGTON, N.C. — A Burlington man has been accused of sending pornographic images to a Facebook account that he thought belonged to a 15-year-old girl.

Kelvin Lamonte Blackwell, 22, is charged with three felony counts of disseminating obscenity to a minor and one count of failing to register as a sex offender.

According to the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, Blackwell was arrested Thursday as the result of an investigation by the office’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Deputies say they contacted Blackwell using an undercover Facebook account, which the suspect believed belonged to a 15-year-old girl. Afterward, Blackwell allegedly sent emails officers using an account that had not been registered with the sheriff’s office. During the conversations, he allegedly sent three pornographic images to officers.

Black was jailed under a $50,000 secured bond. He has a court appearance set for Aug. 23.
