DL man charged with 6 counts of child porn

Jamison Michael Nelson, 40, of Detroit Lakes has been charged in Becker County District Court with six felony counts of possessing pornographic works on a computer.

According to court records, on Feb. 11, 2016, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received an automated repost from Google Inc. that three images, which may have been child pornography, had been uploaded to a Gmail account.

After law enforcement issued subpoenas, the account was allegedly found to be registered to Nelson.

On June 8 a search warrant was executed at Nelson's residence and officers found a hard drive hidden in a coffee pot. Nelson allegedly admitted hiding it there. The hard drive was sent to the Child Victim Identification Program, run by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, where it was found to contain four photos and two videos of child pornography.

On May 22 a warrant was issued for Nelson's arrest.
