Huntsville man faces child porn charges

A Huntsville man is facing 100 counts of  computer child pornography after investigators say they found thousands of images and videos on his cell phone.

Charles Norman Roach, 48, was arrested last Wednesday and is being held at the Washington County Detention Center in lieu of a $100,000 bond.

According to Madison County Sheriff’s Lt. Russ Alberts, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office received a cyber-tip that Roach had downloaded child pornography. An investigation led to a search of the contents of Roach’s cell phone, which Alberts said contained “roughly a combination of 10,000 images and videos” depicting child pornography.

Computer child pornography is a Class B felony in the State of Arkansas.

As of Tuesday, Roach was still detained at the Washington County Detention Center. He is scheduled to appear in Madison County Circuit Court on Tuesday, Nov. 14.
