    Level 3 Sex Offender Arrested on Child Pornography Charges After Buying Child 'Love Doll' Online
    Sean McClure

    A Level 3 sex offender in Massachusetts is facing child pornography charges following an investigation into a purchase he made online.

    Sean McClure, 48, of Shirley, was arrested Thursday on charges of possession of child pornography and distribution of obscene matter.

    Authorities said an investigation by the State Police Cyber Crime Unit began when an e-commerce corporation alerted them that McClure had purchased a "love doll," or sex toy, that resembles a child.

    According to the Cyber Crime Unit, the purchase of such an item violates the company's user agreement and terms of service.
