A Jefferson County man was arrested by Indiana State Police Wednesday on five felony child pornography charges linked to a previous Crimes Against Children investigation involving another Jefferson County man.

In April of this year, ISP investigators assigned to the Internet Crimes against Children unit arrested Donald Victor Weil, 74, of Hanover, Indiana, for Child Solicitation and Sexual Misconduct with a Minor, both Level 4 felonies. Information gained as a result of that case then lead officers to investigate Matthew D. Riddle, 35, of Lexington, Indiana.

On July 12, a search warrant for Riddle’s residence was granted by Jefferson County Circuit Court including searching digital devices used by Riddle. The warrant was executed on July 13 and information collected from that search and investigation then led investigators to request a warrant for Riddle’s arrest.

On July 21, investigators arrested Riddle on three counts of Possession of Child Pornography, all Level 5 felonies; and two counts of Possession of Child Pornography, both Level 6 felonies.

Matthew Riddle was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Jefferson County Jail where he is being held on a $200,00 cash bond. Weil also remains incarcerated at the Jefferson County Jail where he is being held on a $100,000 cash bond.

Both cases are still under investigation.
