A Columbus man has been indicted in connection with the largest-ever takedown of a Darknet child pornography website.  

Alex Paxton is one of more than 300 people across 24 states who allegedly accessed the Bitcoin-powered website Welcome to Video.  Investigators say they seized the site's server in March and discovered thousands of child porn videos.  Other suspects have been arrested around the globe. 

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
