The former frontman for Get Scared, Joel Faviere, is currently facing 107 charges relating to child pornography. Charges include 3 counts of possession of child pornography and 6 counts of promotion of sexual performance of a child.
According to Polk County Sheriff’s Department, “Detectives received information that someone operating a device located in Faviere’s home was sharing files that contained child pornography… detectives found over 4,500 files containing child pornography, including images of infants and toddlers being sexually abused.”
According to a press release by the Sheriff’s office, Faviere told detectives that “he has been viewing child pornography for a year and that it has become an addiction.”
The arrest was made along with 41 other people all facing similar charges.
This isn’t his first time having troubles with the law; Faviere was also arrested back in 2007 for graffiti, loitering and trespassing on school grounds.
