MEMPHIS, Tenn. - A Memphis man was arrested last Friday for having child pornography on his computer and cell phone.

According to WREG-TV  in Memphis, police got a tip that Jerry Nance, who is married and has a child, was sending child porn through his email account.

More than 100 sexually explicit pictures of children were later found on his computer.

“I am glad he is in jail. It’s where he needs to be,” said neighbor Barbara Sherman.

Investigators said the most disturbing images were found on Nance’s cell phone and showed children as young as two years old being sexually assaulted by adult men.

WREG is reporting that Nance signed a statement admitting to having child pornography on his computer.

He is being held in jail on a $100,000 bond and is charged with exploitation of a minor.
