By Annie Blanks, Pensacola News Journal

A 24-year-old Pensacola man was arrested after he went to the Pensacola Police Department and told officers he needed to go to jail because he downloaded child porn on his cellphone.

On Nov. 9, Cory Hinsch walked into the police station at 711 N. Hayne St., approached an officer at the front desk and said he had child porn on his cellphone and needed to go to jail, according to a Pensacola Police Department arrest report.

He then put his cellphone up against the glass and showed the officer a picture of a young girl engaged in sexual acts.

Hinsch was taken upstairs, read his Miranda Rights and said he wanted to give a statement without the presence of an attorney. He told investigators he downloaded child porn from the “dark web” and agreed to let officers download and view his cellphone.

The detectives found two photos depicting child pornography on the cellphone.

Hinsch was arrested and charged with two counts of possession of child pornography. He was released Nov. 13 on $10,000 bond.
