      Additional charges expected in Chippewa County child porn arrest

      Wayne Baldwin was charged with 10 felony counts including five counts of using a computer for immoral purposes and five counts of possessing child abusive material.

      The Chippewa County Prosecutor says additional charges are expected in the case against Wayne Baldwin, the man accused of possessing hundreds of images of child porn.

      Baldwin was arrested after Charlevoix County Sheriff's deputies received a tip and alerted Chippewa County.

      After searching the house on Carrie Street in Sault Ste. Marie, deputies found several computers and cell phones with at least 400 images of child pornography.

      Authorities do not believe at this time that the photos depicted any local children.

      Baldwin was charged with 10 felony counts including five counts of using a computer for immoral purposes and five counts of possessing child abusive material.

      The prosecutor says more charges and suspects are expected.

      At this time, Baldwin is in jail on a $100,000 bond.
