Transgender Daycare Worker And YouTube Star Charged With Possessing Child Porn, Child Abuse Images

Trans YouTube star Kadence Kristine Pinder, who now works with small children at a daycare, had 125 images of child porn on a cell phone, per police.

Kadence Kristine Pinder, 24, born Nelson Christopher Pinder, a popular YouTube star and daycare worker who cares for children from their home, has been arrested and charged with possessing child pornography and child abuse images. Police also arrested Pinder’s boyfriend, 29-year-old Marcus Strebel, for the same charges.

Pinder was initially questioned by police after Google filed a CyberTip claiming the transgendered individual used their services to host child pornography. Initially, Pinder claimed that they did not have child pornography in their possession, and blamed her boyfriend, Strebel, who Pinder says had access to the Google account. Police say the investigation into Pinder began in 2019 with Google’s complaint.

After being confronted, Pinder told police that while the couple found individuals who appeared to be young while browsing for pornography on the popular social media site Tumblr – which allegedly banned pornography from the site years ago – they would only have accidentally downloaded images of underage individuals.

When police initially contacted the couple, they voluntarily offered to let police examine their cell phones to determine if they contained child pornography. The couple went inside their home, from which they offer daycare services to small children, but after 30 minutes reappeared and declined to show police their phones. After police obtained a warrant, they say they found 125 images depicting child pornography on Pinder’s phone.

Local media reports that “During an interview with detectives, Pinder reportedly confirmed that she used the email addresses associated with child pornography. Documents state that Pinder also confirmed she had used the cell phone number 385-401-7111 associated with the email addresses as well.”

Strebel eventually came clean to the police, who say he admitted he and Pinder encountered child pornography “depicting children as young as three or four-years-old,” and again claimed they encountered the child pornography on Tumblr.

According to The Post Millennial, it appears that both Pinder and Strebel work at the daycare center operating from their home address, which local media says is owned by Strebel’s mother. The Post Millennial is also the first outlet to report that Pinder is transgendered and is biologically a man.

The outlet also reports that “Pinder was also the subject of a previous Division of Child and Family Services investigation into an alleged “hands-on” sexual offense against a child, but the case was dropped for unknown reasons.”

Prior to working with small children at Pinder’s boyfriend’s family home, Pinder was a transgender YouTube star, who used the social networking site to document their “transition” from male to female.
