Man Demands Arrest

NOVEMBER 16--A Florida man walked into a Pensacola police precinct and asked to be arrested for downloading images of child porn onto his phone, cops say.

Cory Hinsch, 24, walked into the police station Friday afternoon and told a front desk officer that he “needed to be taken to jail because he had downloaded child pornography on his cell phone,” according to a November 9 Pensacola Police Department report.

Hinsch, seen at right, then “placed his cell phone up to the glass at the counter” and displayed an illicit image of a young girl that was stored on the phone.

During a subsequent interview with investigators, Hinsch reportedly admitted downloading the child porn images from the “dark web” via a “Tor browser app” on his phone.

A police examination of Hinsch’s phone revealed two images of young girls engaging in sexual activity.

Hinsch was arrested on two counts of possession of child pornography. He was booked into the Escambia County jail, where he remained locked up until Tuesday, when he posted $10,000 bond.

Hinsch, who lives in Pensacola, is scheduled to be arraigned on the felony charges on November 30. (2 pages)
