GARNER, N.C. (TCD) -- A 42-year-old man was arrested and charged Tuesday for reportedly having sexually explicit images and videos of young girls.
According to warrants obtained by WNCN-TV, Erich Anton Engel had in possession a dozen videos or images of young girls, ranging in age from 2 to 11 years old. An adult man was reportedly performing sexual acts with children in some of the videos. Names of the recorded children and adult man were not revealed in warrants, WNCN reports.
According to WNCN, documents indicate that Engel received the files containing the images. It is unknown if Engel created the images or how he received them.
Engel was booked into the Wake County Justice Center on $2 million bond, according to jail records. He is reportedly ordered not to have any contact with minors and faces charges of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor. Engel is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 21.
WMBF-TV reports that in 2013, Engel turned himself for a similar crime — criminal sexual misconduct with a young child — in a Myrtle Beach motel in 2012.
