Former high school athlete charged with child porn

WHITESBURG, Ky. (AP) -- A former eastern Kentucky high school basketball standout has been charged with sending nude photos of an underage girl electronically.

WKYT-TV in Lexington reported 19-year-old Koree Stewart is under house arrest in Letcher County after being released from jail following his arrest on one count of distribution of a performance of a sex act by a minor.

The station said Stewart declined comment, but has pleaded not guilty.

The investigation began when a girl's parents called the County Attorney's office on Dec. 7 and complained about photos being circulated. Investigators said they found several inappropriate photos of minors when they checked Stewart's cellphone.

Investigators said more arrests are possible.
