Dep AG Raymond Liddy has been charged with possession of child pornography in San Diego, California

A California deputy attorney general has been charged in San Diego with possession of child pornography. Raymond Joseph Liddy pled not guilty on Tuesday, was released on $100,000 bond and placed on house arrest with GPS monitoring.
An investigation into Liddy, a Deputy Attorney General  was launched after an electronic service provider sent a tip to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in January that a user had uploaded an image that appeared to be kiddy porn. About a month later, another service provider sent a similar tip to the organization reporting that a user had uploaded 10 such images via a messaging program.
The tips were then forwarded to the San Diego Internet Crimes Against Children task force, which traced the online  activity to a home in Coronado. Investigators delved deeper into the user’s emails and chat logs and found the person portrayed himself as a 48-year-old married man with children, although his user profile also indicated he was 52, the complaint says.
