A Watertown man was jailed Wednesday morning after he was accused of possessing child pornography.
Anthony J. Sparks, 25, of 25539 Route 126, was charged earlier Wednesday by the Jefferson County Sheriffs Department with felony possession of child pornography and unlawful possession of marijuana.
He was arrested after an investigation revealed that he electronically recorded a 12-year-old girl while she was nude, deputies said. He is accused of possessing on his computer electronic images of children obviously under the age of 16 performing lewd exhibition.
Deputies also said he was found in possession of 2.0 grams of marijuana and a glass smoking device with marijuana residue.
He was arraigned Wednesday morning before Watertown Town Justice David A. Renzi and was sent to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building on $10,000 bail.
