Agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement today arrested Paul Aaron Hanshaw, 48, of 1350 Delaney Drive, Winter Springs, on charges of solicitation of a minor, transmitting harmful images and possession of child pornography.
Law enforcement authorities in Christiansburg, VA, found evidence that Hanshaw communicated online with someone he believed to be an 11-year-old girl. Among the communications he sent were images and videos of himself in various states of nudity. There are four Virginia counts related to the solicitation and transmitting charges.
FDLE’s Orlando Cyber Crimes Task Force developed probable cause for a search warrant after being contacted by Virginia authorities. During the execution of the warrant, agents found evidence of child pornography on digital devices. The devices were seized for further forensic analysis.
Hanshaw was transported to the Seminole County Jail. He has a no-bond status due to the charges out of state. He will be prosecuted by the State Attorney’s Office, 18th Circuit, on the possession of child pornography charge.
