Florida man hit with 1,184 counts of possession of child porn, detectives say illicit cache is the ‘largest they have ever seen’

News & Politics

A Florida man has been charged with a whopping 1,184 charges of possession of child pornography. Detectives are calling the massive child porn cache the largest they have ever seen.

On Dec. 29, Johnathan Jhovanni Hernandez was charged with two counts of possession of child pornography, two counts of transmitting child pornography, and one count of using a two-way communication device to facilitate a felony. The arrest of Hernandez was facilitated after a tip from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and a months-long investigation.

The Highlands County Sheriff’s Office noted, “At that time, we told you the investigation was just getting started and there would likely be more charges. What we should have said was there would likely be A LOT more charges – like more than anyone in our county … ever.”

Hernandez, who had been out on bond, was arrested again on Tuesday.

The Special Victims Unit seized 15 electronic devices from the home of Hernandez in Avon Park. Following a second investigation into just one of the suspect’s devices by the Highlands County Sheriff’s Office, Hernandez was hit with an additional 1,182 counts of possession of child pornography last week.

Highlands County Sheriff’s Office detectives say Hernandez’s stash of child porn is “the largest they have ever seen.”

Hernandez also faces four counts of possession of bestiality images.

Hernandez is being held on a bond of $2.4 million.

The Highlands County Sheriff’s Office stated that Hernandez has “enough charges to possibly land him life in prison.”

“There is no telling how many charges he could face if detectives went through all the devices,” the Highland County Sheriff’s Office said.
