Bristol Twp Man charged for Possessing and Sharing Child Porn on Social Media App

A Bristol Township man has been charged with possessing child pornography and sharing it on a social media application.

Brendon Vladimir Lauff,  21 of Bristol Township, was charged with dissemination of photo or film of child sex acts, possession of child pornography and criminal use of a communication facility, all third-degree felonies.

Lauff was arraigned Friday by Magisterial District Judge Kevin P. Wagner who sent him to Bucks County Correctional Facility under $500,000 bail, in lieu of 10 percent bond.

Authorities say the investigation by Bucks County Detectives began on March 16, 2021, after they received a cybertip report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that alleged a user on Kik Messenger, a free instant messaging mobile app, uploaded several pornographic images to their server.

Detectives reviewed the cybertip report, which showed 11 videos and 2 images of suspected child pornography.

The images were either shared through private chat messages or in messaging groups on the Kik Messenger app. A subpoena was served on the internet service provider, and it was determined that internet service was provided to a home in Bristol Township where Lauff lived, said police in a press release.

The investigation concluded that between Jan. 30, 2021, and Feb. 15, 2021, Lauff possessed and shared numerous images and videos of child pornography, authorities said.

Lauff’s preliminary hearing has been scheduled for June 30, 2021.

Bucks County Detectives conducted the investigation, and the case is assigned for prosecution to Assistant District Attorney Jovin Jose.
