More than 2,000 pornographic images were found on a 57-year-old Frisco man’s hard drive, according to a July 7 arrest affidavit. Kenneth Scott Case —, a former Amarillo, Texas man who moved to Colorado Springs, Fairplay and then Frisco — was arrested and charged with sexual exploitation of children, a class-four felony.

According to the affidavit, a woman came into the Frisco Police Department on June 20 and handed an officer a gray computer tower and a flash drive, saying “I will not have this computer in my house.”

She had been residing with Casey for the past three months and had noticed the suspicious files when she logged into his computer on her guest account.

“It’s making me sick to my stomach,” she said in an interview. “People need to be aware.”

Just a few days before, the woman said Casey had injured her wrist while she attempted to remove some of the files and photographs from the computer. He was arrested, and a protection order with a “no contact” stipulation was filed.

The woman claims that he broke the restraining order after he was released from the Summit County Jail. In addition to the class-four felony case, deputy district attorney John Franks said Casey faces charges from two misdemeanor cases: third-degree assault, a class-one misdemeanor, and violation of a protection order.

When the woman turned in the hardware to police, she said she had never seen it prior to the incident a few days before.

“I have no idea how long the child porn has been on the computer,” she said, according to the affidavit.

She advised police that the images depicted children ages approximately five to 12.

After a search warrant was approved, police brought in agent Paul Anderson, a forensic computer specialist from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. On July 1, he contacted Frisco Police officer Neil Brown and told him there were “hundreds” of images depicting child pornography on the computer’s hard drive.

The following day, Anderson contacted Brown again, saying he had uncovered a minimum of 2,000 pornographic images containing children under age 18. He also said Casey had bookmarked 357 images.

As the officer had probable cause that hard drive contained more than 20 images and videos with sexually-exploitative material involving children, a warrant was filed for Casey’s arrest. The presumptive range for a class-four felony is two to six years of jail time.

With bond originally set at $2,500, his bond was converted to a personal-recognizance bond during an Oct. 15 hearing, after he had spent four months in the Summit County Jail. His bond conditions include a stipulation that he may not have access to a computer or the Internet.

He will next appear in court for a preliminary hearing on Nov. 3, 2015 at 1:30 p.m.
