Woonsocket man arrested on child porn charges

WOONSOCKET, R.I. (WPRI) — A Woonsocket man has been arrested for possession of child porn, Colonel Steven O’Donnell of the Rhode Island State Police announced on Wednesday.

Robert Lavergne, age 63 of Aylsworth Avenue, was charged with possession and transfer of child pornography.

The Rhode Island Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force initiated an investigation after the internet connection at Lavergne’s residence was recognized for allegedly sharing images of child porn. Task Force members executed a court-authorized search warrant at the residence on Wednesday.

Lavergne will be arraigned at the Sixth Division District Court in Providence on Wednesday.

At this time, there is no evidence to suggest inappropriate conduct between Lavergne and minors.
