Domestic Violence Call Leads to Discovery of Child Porn Collection

When the Fort Lauderdale Police responded to a domestic violence call April 10 at the home of Frank Hottenrott, officers made a grisly discovery: over 1,200 images of child pornography and more than 300 videos stored among several of Hottenrott's computers. 


In his confession to police, Hottenrott allegedly owned up to movies that showed children as young as eight years old. But the movies reviewed by investigators revealed that at least one victim was only three months old. This morning, Hottenrott was booked on charges of possessing child porn.
