Authorities: Fairfield home had child porn

FAIRFIELD, OH (FOX19) -

A registered sex offender in Fairfield has been arrested who authorities say had electronics in his residence that officials believe contain child pornography.

A search warrant was served Monday at the home of Brent King, 47, of the 300 block of Lauryn Meadows Court.

"This defendant was convicted of sexually abusing a child in the past and now we believe he has victimized other children through the sharing and downloading of child pornography," Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said Tuesday.

King was designated a sexual predator following his conviction in Indiana on a child molestation charge in 2007. He was taken into custody on a parole violation and is in the Butler County jail.
