The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Office sexual assault and narcotics units, as well as the gang task force, teamed up to bust a Cambria man Wednesday who had reportedly been downloading and distributing child pornography from his home.

Shortly after 7 a.m., detectives searched the home of 49-year-old Christopher John Kehoe and found a computer containing more than 600 images of pubescent children engaged in sexual acts. Kehoe allegedly downloaded the images from the internet and then distributed them.

The detectives could not find any evidence, though, that Kehoe was using his house to create child pornography. His home is located at 2555 Wilcombe Road.

Sheriff’s detectives also seized other computers and digital media from the house, and they will conduct forensic analysis of the evidence in search of child pornography. They, too, found six ounces of methamphetamine, as well as proof of narcotic sales, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

Detectives arrested Kehoe and charged him with two counts of possession and distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of a controlled substance for sale. Kehoe is currently in San Luis Obispo County Jail on $120,000 bail.

    Have we all so easily forgotten the 57 year old past principal of Templeton Middle School who became the Superintendent of San Miguel School District who ‘groomed’ an 11 year old girl from Templeton for 7 years, then left his wife and moved in with his ‘girl’ friend as soon as she turned 18? The ones who are smart enough, know how to get away with their pedophilia. This particular pedophile ended up marrying his ‘girl’ friend and having a baby. Living happily ever after with a Superintendent of Schools retirement I presume. But he was smart enough to not admit to having sex till the day after her 18th birthday and he had ‘groomed ‘ her so well she married him and will be changing his diapers when she’s 30.

    who let this man out of Oceano or GB ? How did he get as far as Cambria?

    Man just doesn’t have that polished Birkenstock Cambria liberal look. Looks like a ped…..

    . Anyway, hope they try him and convict him if appropriate. these people ARE too numerous in society based on public opinion.

    You can talk about how pedophiles “groom” the parents, child and community to posture themselves to have access to children….and they just sit there with a blank look. People need to get wise to this crap. Get out of your Disney-All-American-Dream….these guys are everywhere! They are teachers, and child care workers and priests….and if you learn how to spot them and their techniques–you may save your child or another from years of suffering and trauma.

    Labeling can be dangerous. For every culprit resembling Mr. Kehoe’s deranged, disheveled appearance, one can surmise there are at least 100 more that wear expensive suits, have nice haircuts, and hold prestigious jobs. They fly under the radar because they don’t “have the look” of a criminal.

    Because we already know that about him, which biases us, and, because it’s always a mug shot or DL photo in which we all look like criminals. You could put anyone’s face with that story and think the same thing.

        zaphod, the link you provided, that is a little bit different then this guy having pictures of kids engaged in sexual acts. From what I can get from what I understand, he gets off on that. Thats not quite the same as undercovers using decoys.
