SISTERS, OR -- A 73-year-old Sisters man faces dozens of charges relating to child pornography. The Deschutes County Sheriff's Office received a tip from the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) that George Staab possibly possessed and was distributing child porn.
On Tuesday, detectives served a search warrant at his home on Cayuse Drive, and say they located a large amount of child pornography. Based on that evidence and statements Staab made during an interview, he was arrested on 30 counts of first degree Encouraging Child Sex Abuse and 20 counts of second degree Encouraging Child Sex Abuse. The investigation is ongoing and officials say more charges could follow.
ICAC is a national network of 61 coordinated task forces representing over 4,500 federal, state and local law enforcement and prosecutorial agencies.
