Warning about pornographic video being shared on social media sites

Posted: Updated:
JEFFERSON COUNTY, AL -

Law enforcement officials have a warning for those of you visiting social media sites.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office has received several reports of a pornographic video being circulated on social media websites.

The video contains images of an adult and child in a sexual act.

People are forwarding or sharing this video and commenting on the disgusting nature, which is also increasing the risk of greater exposure.

Social media companies are working with the FBI and The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to identify the source of the video and remove it from their service.

The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office will pursue criminal charges against anyone that posts, shares, likes or in any way disseminates any video or photograph that depicts this type of abuse in violation of the laws of the State of Alabama.

If you should encounter this or any video like it, report it to the social media service.

You may also wish to make a note of the person who shared it and report them to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
