A Greeley man was arrested late Wednesday after a relative called police to tell them he had child pornography on his computer.
David Justin Ackerson, 38, was booked into the Weld County Jail on a charge of sexual exploitation of children after police used a search warrant to look into his computer and also found photographs in a filing cabinet in his home.
He remained in jail today, held on $50,000 bond.
Court records on the case show that a family member of Ackerson's was using his home computer and found photos of young boys and girls involved in sexual acts, sometimes with adults. Police said the children appeared to be between 6 and 10 years old.
When asked about the photos in the file cabinet, Ackerson told police they were placed there by a nephew. Family members denied Ackerson's claim. He also told police he'd had the photographs on his home computer for about nine months, but was sorting through the photos to remove the ones that were illegal.
