Faulkner County man arrested for possesion of child porn

Thursday, August 2, 2012 - 5:19pm

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel today announced that agents from his office have arrested a Faulkner County man for possession of child pornography.

Raymond Intervallo, 51, was arrested this afternoon at his Conway residence by agents with the Attorney General’s Cyber Crimes Unit on suspicion of 10 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child, a Class C felony.

Intervallo was being held in the Faulkner County Detention Center pending his initial court appearance Friday morning.

“Internet predators commit a despicable criminal act every time they view or trade an image of a child being sexually abused,” McDaniel said. “We look forward to presenting this case in court, and we will continue to investigate and arrest those in our State who would prey upon our most vulnerable citizens.”

Agents with the Attorney General’s Office arrested Intervallo following the execution of a search warrant at Intervallo’s residence, 16 Bowling Lane, in Conway. Intervallo was taken into custody after admitting to investigators that he possessed multiple images of child pornography on his computer. The computer and other seized electronic evidence will be analyzed at the Cyber Crimes Unit Forensic Lab in Little Rock.

Special Agent Chad Meli of the Attorney General’s Office began an investigation into Intervallo in mid-July after suspecting that child pornography was being possessed at Intervallo’s residence.

The Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the investigation and arrest. Twentieth Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland will appoint Assistant Attorney General Bart Dickinson as deputy prosecutor in the case.

Charges are merely accusations and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
