A registered sex offender in Martin County, Fla., has been arrested for child pornography possession. Tim Orman was arrested at his Jensen Beach home on Wednesday by the FBI and the Martin County Sheriff’s Office.

Orman’s possession of child pornography was discovered when CyberCrime investigators located images of child pornography during a routine undercover investigation and traced the images back to Orman’s computer. A search warrant was served at his house Wednesday morning and police seized more than 20 computers from Orman's home which will undergo additional forensic analysis. Orman, 46, admitted to possessing the images discovered during the investigation. The images identified included images of children appearing to be as young as 10 years old.

According to the Florida sex offender registry, Orman’s prior conviction was for a California charge involving a sexual crime on a victim under the age of 14.

Orman will be charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography which will be enhanced from third-degree to second-degree felonies under the CyberCrimes Against Children Act. Additional charges may be added after the forensic analysis has been completed on the equipment seized from his house.
