Police arrest Orem man on child pornography charges
First Published Dec 15 2011 07:41 am • Last Updated Dec 14 2011 06:26 pm

A 27-year-old Orem is facing almost 80 counts of sexually exploiting children after dozens of child pornography images were found on his computer.

In court papers, Orem police said they received a tip that the man had child pornography on his computers. When confronted by police in his motel room Tuesday, the man said he had a problem with child pornography, and that he had pictures on his computers.

Police said the man gave detectives permission to look on his computer, and they found 59 still pictures and two videos of nude children, ranging in ages from 4 to 14. The images showed the children engaged in sex acts and being molested by adult men.

The man told police he received the images and saved them on his computer. Police say he told them that he had hundreds of images on his two computers.

The man is charged with 79 second-degree felony counts of sexually exploiting children, and potentially faces one-to-15-years in prison on each county. He is being held at the Utah County Jail on $25,000 bail.
