A Boca Raton man was charged with sexual battery on a minor and possession of child pornography in late June after police found pornographic pictures of him and a child on his digital camera, Boca Raton police announced today.
Richard Allen Mingst, 69, confessed to police in Blue Ridge, Ga., where he has a second home. He was arrested on June 26 and is being held at the Fannin County Jail awaiting extradition to Palm Beach County.
In late June, a family member found a picture of Mingst and a child on his digital camera. The alleged sexual battery apparently occurred at his home on the 100 block of N.W. 70th Street in Boca Raton.
