Affidavit: Martha’s Vineyard had 4,100 child sex abuse files on his computer

EDGARTOWN, Mass. — Investigators say a Martha’s Vineyard man had thousands of pictures downloaded on his computer that depicted children being sexually abused.

Investigators arrested Stephen Jenkinson, 52, of Oaks Bluff, February 27 on two counts of dissemination of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

The same day, they executed a search warrant at the Carole Avenue home Jenkinson was living in. They found a life-sized child sex doll under his bed and pairs of little girl’s underwear nearby, according to the affidavit obtained by Boston 25 News.

“In a large, locked box, investigators found more sex toys which include a child-like buttocks and vagina,” the affidavit stated. “There were also children’s shoes, children’s bikini bottoms and little wigs. The box also contained rope and dildos.”

Investigators also searched Jenkinson’s computer and said they found more than 4,100 digital files of child sex abuse material, including a man raping a girl believed to be between the ages of 5 and 7.

Investigators interviewed Jenkinson and said he admitted to being sexually attracted to girls between the ages of 5 and 8 years old.

“Stephen was asked about the child sex doll under his bed and he admitted to having sex with it in order to simulate having sex with a child,” the affidavit states.

The judge ordered Jenkinson be held on $1,500 bail. If he posts bail, he must stay away from and not have any contact with anyone under the age of 17 and stay away from all public libraries on the island.

He’s due back in Edgartown District Court on March 23 for a probable cause hearing.
