Jackson man arrested on child porn charges

Posted: Updated:

PEARL, MS (WLBT) - A Jackson man is behind bars in Rankin County, facing five counts of possessing child pornography.

Authorities say 30 year old John Butalla took his computer in for some repairs and the company contacted Pearl Police when they discovered child porn in some files.

Butalla is a registered sex offender. In 2005 he was convicted of touching a child for lustful purposes in Jackson County.

Butalla served time in prison and was released earlier this year. Bond has been set at one million dollars per charge. He is being held in the Rankin County jail.
