Emmanuel Folly is a veteran who works as a police officer in West Philadelphia in the 18th district police department.
Folly is a dashing 25-year old man who has an undefeated record as a professional boxer.
Overall, he paints the image of being an amazing human being and a strong man. Unfortunately, things are not always what they appear to be.
He was charged on Tuesday with the sexual abuse of children as well as possession of child pornography. He was immediately taken into custody after surrendering to Internal Affairs.
He has been suspended for 30 days and it is very likely he will lose his job.
The Special Victims Unit used a program that would track down all the people who view, download and share child porn. That investigation led to an address, which turned out to be Folly’s home. It’s a sick world to live in.
In March 2016, the department’s Special Victims Unit initiated an computer investigation using a program to track down people viewing, downloading, and sharing child porn. That investigation led to an internet address registered to a residence in the 3300 block of North 15th Street in the city’s Tioga section.
In November of last year, SVU investigators executed a warrant at the address and seized a laptop computer, a desktop computer, and a tablet computer. During the search, they learned that Folly lived at the residence with his parents.
The computers were sent to the FBI for forensic analysis. Child porn was found on the laptop computer, which was owned by Folly, police said. Police are continuing to investigate.
