A medical student who was arrested and released in a public prosecutor’s action last Tuesday (19) was arrested on Thursday morning (21) in Porto Alegre . He is investigated for pedophilia involving a 10-year-old boy from São Paulo.

During the fulfillment of search warrant in his house, in the neighborhood Bom Fim, was found a notebook with more than 12 thousand images of children and adolescents. The 27-year-old university student had been arrested in flagrante delicto for the crime of “acquiring, possessing or storing sexually explicit or pornographic photography involving a child or teenager.”

The crime is able to pay bail, so he disbursed $ 20,000 and was released. The name of the suspect and the university in which he studies were not disclosed by the MP and the police. 

On the same day that the student of the seventh semester of medical school was released, the Civil Police asked for his preventive custody for two crimes: the same of the arrest in flagrante and the one of “entice, harass, instigate or embarrass child for the purpose with her doing a libidinous act. ” As a result, a new bail payment was made unfeasible because of the sum of the penalties provided, which exceeds seven years, which prevents the judiciary from granting the benefit.
