22-year-old Upper Moreland resident sentenced to prison for possession of child pornography

Logan Menkevich, 22, of the 400 block of Silver Avenue in Upper Moreland Township, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of possessing child pornography on his electronic devices between June and November 2021.

According to the Pottstown Mercury, he has been sentenced to 11½ to 23 months in prison and seven years of probation.

A judge said Menkevich will be placed under sex offender supervision while serving his sentence and is prohibited from having unsupervised contact with children, according to the Mercury. Menkevich also has a 25-year requirement to report his address to state police per Pennsylvania’s Sexual Offender Registration and Notification Act, previously known as Megan’s Law.

The investigation began in June 2021 when state troopers conducting undercover operations located a computer sharing child pornography. Troopers downloaded a video file displaying a female child engaged in prohibited sexual acts and then linked the internet address to Menkevich’s Upper Moreland address, the Mercury said.

Investigators later used a search warrant to sift through files on his electronic devices. Extracted data showed 4,272 images and about 232 videos “all depicting apparent child pornography,” detectives wrote in the criminal complaint.
