WILKES-BARRE — An 18-year-old man from Kingston was charged Wednesday with uploading a nude picture of a young girl on Facebook.


Noe Junior Vargas, of Pringle Street, was arraigned by District Judge Martin Kane on a single count of child pornography. He was released on $10,000 unsecured bail.


Luzerne County detectives and state police Northeast Computer Crime Unit allege Vargas uploaded a picture of a girl about 10-years-old on Facebook and emailed the picture to another person on Feb. 4. Vargas resided on Wyoming Street, Wilkes-Barre, when he allegedly emailed the picture of the exposed girl, according to the criminal complaint.


Vargas allegedly told investigators he has had a problem with adult and child pornography since he was 10-years-old, the complaint says.


A preliminary hearing is scheduled on July 24.
