A Pierce County man charged with having child pornography insisted the little girls in the photographs weren’t naked – they were wearing see-through clothing.
Robert Davis, 61, faces four counts of possession of depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct. An arraignment date has not been scheduled.
Sheriff’s deputies were first called to the man’s house in February 2013 by a neighbor who reported seeing inappropriate photos of children on Davis’ computer.
Davis agreed to show deputies his computer, which allegedly contained multiple photos of naked children, some of whom were engaged in sexually explicit activities.
“When asked why he had naked pictures of children on his computer, the defendant said the girls were not naked, that their clothing was see through and he liked their outfits,” according to charging papers.
Prosecutors filed charges Wednesday after detectives reviewed a CD of images found on Davis’ computer that had been forensically analyzed.
