An East Manchester Township man is accused of sharing child porn with a group of "like-minded" individuals, including a man from the United Kingdom, according to police.

State police said Steven Ray Iseman admitted to producing the pictures and sharing them with a group of people using a second iPhone, one he uses to download and share child pornography.

Iseman, 46, of the 200 block of Torrey Pines Drive, is charged with multiple counts of disseminating photos of child sex acts, child pornography, and one count of criminal use of a communications facility, among other charges.

Investigation: According to charging documents, local authorities were contacted by South Wales Police in July.

That police department arrested a man named John Guess, who appeared to be "managing" a group of "like-minded individuals" who share child porn on Kik, a messenger app, officials said.
