The Zguro’s were arrested as the result of an undercover Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) investigation. The investigation was initiated after the Powderly Police Department recovered a lost phone containing child sexual abuse material from a local retail store. The investigation resulted in the execution of a search warrant at a residence in Greenville on May 19, 2020. Equipment used to facilitate the crime was seized and taken to KSP’s forensic laboratory for examination. The investigation is ongoing.
Mr. Zguro is currently charged with ten counts of possession of matter portraying sexual performance by a minor 1st offense (Class D felony). Mrs. Zguro is currently charged with one count of possession of matter portraying sexual performance by a minor 1st offense (Class D felony). Each count of a Class D felony is punishable by one to five years in prison. The Zguro’s were also charged with unrelated drug possession offenses and subsequently were lodged on all offenses in the Muhlenberg County Detention Center.
The Kentucky Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force is comprised of more than twenty-six local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. The mission of the ICAC Task Force, created by the United States Department of Justice and administrated by the Kentucky State Police, is to assist state and local law enforcement agencies in developing a response to cyber enticement and child sexual abuse material investigations.
This support encompasses forensic and investigative components, training and technical assistance, victim services, prevention and community education. The ICAC program was developed in response to the increasing number of children and teenagers using the internet, the proliferation of child sexual abuse material, and the heightened online activity of predators searching for unsupervised contact with underage victims.
