Convicted Sex Offender Charged With Child Pornography Offenses

2Attorney General Beau Biden announced today that an investigation by the Delaware Child Predator Task Force has led to the arrest of a Milford-area registered sex offender who now faces charges that he dealt in child pornography.

“Child pornographers are child predators,” Attorney General Biden said. “That’s why our Child Predator Task Force works day and night to identify these threats to our kids and take them off the streets.”

On Wednesday, June 18, 2014, as part an investigation into the distribution of child pornography online the Child Predator Task Force executed a search warrant at a residence in the unit block of E. Yorktown Road in Milford. An occupant of the residence, 23 year-old Eric Robert Aldrich, a registered sex offender currently on supervised probation, was identified during the investigation. Aldrich is prohibited from having internet access as a condition of his probation and was taken into custody at his probation office on the day the search warrant of his home was executed.

The release stated that during their search of Aldrich’s residence, detectives seized three computers and other digital media. A forensic preview of the evidence revealed multiple videos of child pornography. As a result, Aldrich was arrested and charged with 25 counts of Dealing in Child Pornography. He was arraigned via video phone by JP Court #2 and was committed to Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $500,000 secured bail.
