The former editor of a Berkshire County news website is facing charges for allegedly having child porn.
That’s according to our media partners at The Berkshire Eagle.
Slade Sohmer, from Otis, Massachusetts, was arrested for allegedly having hundreds of inappropriate pictures and videos of kids, officials said.
Multiple phones and computers were found during a search of Sohmer’s home last week, according to police.
