LOGAN — Criminal charges are pending against a 43-year-old Logan man, suspected of downloading more than a hundred pictures and videos of children being sexually abused. Daniel G. Archibald was booked into the Cache County Jail Monday morning.
Logan City Police Capt. Curtis Hooley said last month officers received a tip from agents with the Internet Crimes against Children Task Force (ICAC) at the State Attorney General’s Office. They had tracked Archibald downloading more than one hundred pictures and videos of child pornography.
When police served a warrant to Archibald’s residence they located the material on multiple electronic devices. Those items were seized and sent to the Utah State Crime Lab for forensic analysis.
Hooley said officers believe Archibald downloaded the material off the internet. It did not appear initially that any of the victims filmed were from the local area. He also explained that they had found enough evidence to book the suspect on 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony.
Formal charges are pending the completion of the investigation.
Archibald was released from jail after posting $100,000 bond. He could face up to 15-years in prison if convicted.
