Bail has been set at $300,000 for a 19-year-old man from Caldwell, Idaho, who is being held in the Cache County Jail on suspicion of child sex abuse, possession of child pornography and sharing pornographic images with minors.
Kyle Joe was arrested on June 4 after he was interviewed at the Cache County Sheriff’s Office, three months after deputies received the initial report.
According to a probable cause statement filed in 1st District Court, four minors have said Joe showed them pornographic images and sexually abused them over approximately four years, while the alleged victims were 6-12 years of age.
Joe’s phone was reportedly seized during the investigation and the detective stated “there were hundreds of photos and videos of child pornography and adult pornography,” including images of the victims in this case and several unidentified child victims.
Charges were filed on Thursday and they include 10 counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, and six counts of dealing in material harmful to a minor.
