Authorities release details of Safety Harbor man's child pornography videos

CLEARWATER — A Safety Harbor man arrested on child pornography charges last week had several videos showing children — some as young as 4 or 5 — engaging in sexual acts, authorities say.

James Neil Saxon, a 55-year-old employee at Clearwater's Aerosonic Corp., was arrested April 9 after investigators with the Attorney General's Tampa CyberCrime Task Force and the Central Florida Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force searched through his computer equipment at work.

At the time of Saxon's arrest, authorities released little information about his alleged crimes. But arrest affidavits, released Thursday, go into great detail about what investigators say Saxon had in his possession. Those items included:

• A video of a girl 9 or 10 years old exposing herself.

• Videos of girls as young as 4 or 5 engaged in sex acts with men.

• A video of a girl 10 or 11 having sex with another female.

Saxon faces 20 counts of child pornography possession. His bail is set at $200,000.
