Charles Holbrook Arrested for Child Porn

Charles Holbrook found himself in familiar territory: under arrest for child porn for the second time in a decade.

Holbrook, who lives on Longstreet in Wyoming was arraigned today on two counts of Child Sexually Abusve Material, two counts of possession of child pornography, a weapons charge and accosting a child for immoral purposes.

Police worry there could be other victims out there.

Last Friday, Child Protective Services tipped off police; allegations of misconduct in the house owned by Holbrook, called 'Uncle Chuck' by some in the Wyoming neighborhood. Officers raided the house. Neighbor Kevin West told FOX 17 News, "I saw them throw something out, looked like a hard drive out the front door."

Police say they took dozens of bags with pornographic images of children and teens, 3 computers, and several guns, which are illegal for a felon to own. Police haven't been able to identify some of victims in the photos yet. Court records say he recently took naked photos of a child and asked a 14 year old girl to have sex with him.

Back in 2000, Holbrook was caught with child pornographic photos dating back to the 1970's. He pled no contest to third degree criminal sexual conduct. "When you think about child you think about innocence, and it's situations like this that destroy that or take that innocence away," Lt. Scott Beckman told FOX 17 News.

Holbrook faces up to 20 years behind bars if convicted. He's being held on $500,000 bond, and will be back in court August 19th.
