Salem man charged with making child sex abuse images
Kevin Rodwell was arraigned in Salem District Court on Tuesday on a charge of manufacturing a child sexual abuse image, according to Salem Police Deputy Chief Shawn Patten.
The charge results from an investigation by Salem Detectives Ryan Sambataro and H. Michael Geha, with assistance from the Medway, Mass., police and the Massachusetts State Police, according to Patten.
Salem police initially arrested him on April 11 on charges of criminal restraint and endangering the welfare of a child for taking the teenager across the state line to his apartment against the wishes of the girl’s father. Related charges were filed in Massachusetts.
According to Patten, the investigation is continuing and additional charges may be filed.
