More child porn charges levied

Sheriff’s Major Crimes detectives brought more child pornography charges against a man arrested earlier this year.

39 year old Robert Pearl, AKA Robert Trotter, was originally arrested in February for driver’s license fraud. He and his wife gave fake driver’s licenses as ID when they applied for work at Gilbert’s Resort in Key Largo. They were found to have outstanding warrants in California under their real names.

Pearl was further charged with multiple counts of possessing child pornography in May of this year after an examination of a computer in his possession turned up a number of illegal images.

The investigation has continued, along with further examination of the computer’s hard drive. On Saturday, Pearl was further charged with seven more counts of sexual performance by a child because he possessed videos of underage children performing sexual acts.

Pearl remains in the Monroe County Detention Center.
