Raleigh man held on $1 million bail on child-porn charges

Police on Tuesday charged Patrick Kenneth Donovan with second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, saying he had copied seven child-pornography videos and five still images from the Internet.

Donovan, 44, was arrested at his home at 6901 Stillwater Point and held on $1 million bail for a Wednesday court appearance.

The videos and still images involved girls who investigators estimated were between 8 and 14 years old, arrest warrants said.

One of the videos came from a pornographic series known to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, police stated.
