Fraud suspect also charged with child pornography
A man arrested for giving fraudulent identification to his employer during the hiring process was further charged with possessing child pornography.
39 year old Robert Pearl was originally arrested in February after detectives discovered he and his girlfriend had given false identification to the owner’s of Gilbert’s Resort when they were hired to work there.
Subsequent investigation led to the examination of a computer Pearl had in his possession that belonged to Gilbert’s resort. Resort owners said the computer was password protected by Pearl, and when they asked him for the password, he always had an excuse for why he couldn’t give it to them.
Examination of the computer’s hard drive revealed images of child pornography. Pearl, who was still in jail on the fraud charges, was further charged with six counts possession of child pornography.
