      Sturgeon man charged with promoting child porn


      A Sturgeon man has been charged with promoting child pornography and possession of child pornography.

      Investigators say Karl M. Ball had thousands of pictures of child pornography.


      Authorities say the 41-year-old who lived on East David had a prior conviction for a sexual offense against a minor.


      This time it was Microsoft that alerted authorities to some 12-hundred pictures and 20 videos showing children in sex acts, some as young as 9.


      A judge has set Ball's bond at 250 thousand dollars, cash only.


      Ball was also ordered to have no contact with any person under 18 years old.
