Sonora, CA — A joint law enforcement investigation between Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Detectives and the Modesto Police Department puts an East Sonora man behind bars for allegedly sharing child pornography via the internet. 54 year-old Richard Larry Jones of East Sonora was arrested after his home on the 1500 block of Cavalieri Road was search around 11am this morning.
