 Huntsville Man Turns Himself Into Police for Pornography Charges


Huntsville, Alabama (August 15, 2007) Thirty-three-year-old Matthew William Stowe turned himself in to Huntsville Police today on two counts of Possession of Pornographic Material. Spokesman Wendell Johnson said he was released from the Madison County Jail on a $10,000 bond.


Johnson said the case began a month ago when Stowe’s employer discovered that  he was allegedly visiting pornography sites. The employer contacted Huntsville Police who picked up the computer as part of the investigation. Police then requested a search warrant for Stowe’s home computer where child pornography was discovered.
