(WIAT) Pornographic video and images involving children continues to garner attention from local and federal authorities.

Jefferson County investigators released a warning to social media users who support, distribute, like or share online images involving minors, Thursday, stating quote “the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office will pursue criminal charges against anyone that posts, shares, likes or in any way disseminates any video or

photograph that depicts this type of abuse in violation of the laws of the State of Alabama.”

The warning comes on the heels of a recent video that depicts an adult male engaging in sexual acts with a female child.

Jefferson County authorities aren’t alone in their endeavors to keep sexual abuse victims safe.

Social media companies along with the FBI and The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children are working to identify the persons involved in the aforementioned video.

Anyone who comes across said images should report the individual to the local authorities.
