MOUNT RAINIER, Md. (WJZ) — A Prince George’s County man was arrested Tuesday after an investigation showed he had distributed child pornography from his home.

The Maryland State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force got a referral in September from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding the distribution of child pornography from the internet address of 22-year-old Jonathan Simmons.
