LOGAN, Utah -- (KSTU) -- A Logan man was arrested after allegedly filming his 11-year-old sister in explicit poses without her knowledge, then posting it to a well-known site where users post and exchange child pornography.
Emanuel Zamora, 18, was charged with eight counts of sexual exploitation of a minor Wednesday.
According to an affidavit of probable cause released in Utah’s 1st District Court, on Sept. 7, Homeland Security Investigations in Ogden received information from the Cyber Crimes Center, saying that a potential child sex offender may be residing in the area. The affidavit said that photos were posted on the website by Zamora, which depicted his sister napping. The photos were taken in a manner that appeared to be sexually explicit.
“The suspect posting these photos was making comments about possibly sexually abusing the child,” the affidavit said. “Multiple users of this international website were requesting the subject take more pictures and ‘share’ with them.”
"It appears that Zamora took these videos/images without the victim’s knowledge while she was undressing,” the affidavit stated.
