A convicted sex offender has been charged with 38 counts of possession of child pornography, Bellevue police said Tuesday.
Christopher Brackett, 36, was arrested Monday after a search of his cellphone, computers and other electronic devices revealed he had met a 16-year-old girl though an online video game.
Police said Brackett began messaging the girl and went to Ohio twice to meet her in person.
Brackett is listed on Iowa’s sex offender registry. In 2003, he was convicted there of sexual explotation of a minor.
