Middleton man sent for evaluation after second child porn arrest

MIDDLETON — A man who was already awaiting trial on charges that he was sharing child sexual abuse images through a Dropbox account has been charged again, after police discovered that he was allegedly sharing similar images on a different online account.

Pedro Ferreira, 23, of 161 Essex St., Middleton, was arrested last week on the new charges, which stem from a state police investigation.

State police who are assigned to an Internet Crimes Against Children task force received information earlier this year that Ferreira was sharing videos and still images on Kik, an online app, according to court records.
