Soldier faces more child porn charges

FORT BRAGG Detectives charged 21-year old Michael Christopher Skeen of H-6262 Kendenburg Street, Fort Bragg on July 31, with five counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and five counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

On Tuesday, detectives filed additional charges of second and third degree sexual exploitation of a minor against him. Skeen now faces a total of 20 charges.

A spokesperson said photos of nude and partially nude children engaging in sexual acts with adults were found on Skeen's home computer. The computer also contained numerous child pornography videos, which were believed to have been downloaded between November 12, 2008 and July 15, 2009.

Skeen has been held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $125,000 bond since his July arrest. His bond is expected to increase to $250,000, because of the additional charges.

Skeen will make his first court appearance on the latest charges on Wednesday.
