Storey County Teen Faces New Child Porn Charges

VIRGINIA CITY, Nev. (AP) - Authorities say a Storey County teenager already facing sex-related offenses has been charged with additional counts after investigators found thousands of child pornography images on his computer.

Eighteen-year-old Zachary R. Harding was arrested earlier this month on allegations of molesting a 5-year-old child for whom he sometimes baby-sat. He was charged with lewdness with a child younger than 14 and indecent or obscene exposure.

Authorities say investigators later found thousands of pornographic images and videos depicting children ranging in age from about 6 months to 13 years.
