KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) - Authorities have charged a former
Ketchikan city councilman with 81 additional counts of possessing
child pornography.
Ketchikan police say two additional charges were filed after a
homemade video was found showing John "Jack" W. Shay with a
pre-pubescent female.
The Ketchikan Police Department says in a release that the other
charges stem from images found on Shay's computer.
Shay was arrested last Friday and charged with 10 counts after
he took his computer and printer to a repair shop. Employees of the
shop called police after they said they found pornography.
Ketchikan Deputy Police Chief Josh Dossett says in an email to
The Associated Press that Shay turned himself in Thursday, per a
judge's order. Bail was set at $100,000.
Shay's attorney, Christopher Boyette, declined comment through
his receptionist..
