Man faces child pornography charges

A Port Orchard man was charged Jan. 31 with possessing child pornography in Kitsap County District Court.

Eric Jason Juhl, 32, will face two counts of possession of depictions of minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

On Jan. 29, a female reported seeing child pornography on Juhl’s computer, according to charging documents. The woman told investigators that she saw about 20 images of girls, approximately 8-9 years old, engaged in sexual activity with an adult male.

Court records stated that Juhl told investigators that he thought the images were of females age 18 and older. Detectives issued a search warrant to examine the man’s computer. During the search, detectives found a lock box that contained more pornographic materials — including two DVDs marked “Good Stuff.”

He was arrested and booked into the Kitsap County Jail. Bail was set at $250,000.
