Feds say Edenton man found with over 3,000 child porn images, videos

RALEIGH, N.C. (WITN) – An Eastern Carolina man will spend the next 8-1/2 years in federal prison after prosecutors say they found thousands of child porn pictures on his devices.

Matterson Rusyn, of Edenton, was also ordered to pay $107,000 in restitution to 16 known victims.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says during a search of the man’s home, he admitted collecting child pornography and video.

The feds say authorities found more than 3,000 child porn images including videos of infants, toddlers, and very young children.

Microsoft alerted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children who then contacted the Chowan County Sheriff’s Office.

Rusyn pleaded guilty to child pornography charges in January.

In addition to the prison sentence, Rusyn will be put on 10 years of supervised probation when he gets out of prison.
