CLEARFIELD -- The Attorney General's Office has charged a 58-year-old Clearfield man with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Robert G. Fisher was booked and released from the Davis County Jail on Wednesday. He is scheduled to appear in court today.

All of the charges are second-

degree felonies and each carries a possible sentence of one to 15 years in the Utah State Prison.

According to court documents, the investigation was referred to the Utah Attorney General's Office Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force by a Syracuse police officer.

The task force went to Fisher's home on March 1, 2012, with a search warrant, according to the document.

Fisher admitted to using Limewire and Frostwire to download music. He agreed to talk to officers, but at first denied downloading any programs with child pornography, according to the court document.

Fisher did admit to watching adult pornography, according to the document. He finally admitted to officers that he had watched some child pornography "out of curiosity."

He told officers he "wanted to get some help for his addiction," according to the document.

Officers conducted a forensics exam on his computer and found files consist with child pornography, the court documents state.
