A 16-year-old has been arrested and accused of downloading child porn, police said.
Robert Livingston, of Palm Beach Gardens, had his first appearance at a hearing in front of a judge on Tuesday morning. He has been charged with 48 counts of possessing child pornography.
In a probable cause report, an investigator working undercover said he found a computer Internet provider address that was sharing multiple child pornography videos.
The detective sent a subpoena to the Internet provider and obtained an address to a Palm Beach Gardens home.
Investigators said the teen admitted to downloading the videos. Many of them included files of pre-teen children.
The judge granted bond at $500 for each count and ordered the teen to house arrest with no contact with any children and no access to a computer.
Livingston will only be allowed out of the house to attend school. He is scheduled to begin 11th grade at Dwyer High School in two weeks.
