FERRISBURGH, Vt. - A Ferrisburgh man is charged with six counts of promoting child pornography. 

A press release says Scott Cota, 41, posted several advertisements on Craigslist looking for "taboo" materials. Through the advertisements, individuals traded files with Cota containing child pornography. Police say some of those mages and movies depicting children were as young as infants engaging in sexual activity. 

One individual was arrested in Florida and charged with child molestation and transmission of child pornography. 

Cota pleaded not guilty. The court set bail at $100,000 cash and imposed conditions of release that would limit his access to children and the internet.
