Michigan man facing child porn possession charges

If you drive a little more than 20 miles northeast of Ann Arbor, you will arrive in Novi. The Detroit suburb is the home of a man recently arrested by Michigan State Police for possession of child pornography.

Officials said that law enforcement officers found more than 50,000 files "related to child pornography" in the possession of the 27-year-old man. He has been charged with aggravated possession of child sexually abusive material and using a computer to commit a crime.

MSP said it began investigating the Novi resident after learning that he allegedly had more than 50,000 child porn files.

According to a news report, after an investigation, MSP officers searched his home a few days ago and then arrested him with help from the Novi Police Department.

Michigan law states that a person convicted of aggravated possession of child sexually abusive material can be sentenced to up to 4 years in a state prison and fined up to $10,000.

It should be noted that aggravated distribution/promotion of child sexually abusive material can carries a potential sentence of 7 years and $50,000 in fines. A conviction for production or financing of the material can mean up to 20 years behind bars and a fine of up to $100,000.

Anyone convicted in Michigan of a sex crime is required to register as a sex offender - a registration that lasts a minimum of 25 years. That means the person has to register their address with local law enforcement and update the information whenever they move.

It goes without saying that registration has an enormous negative impact on a person's life, including employment and housing opportunities and in relationships with family, friends and others.
