St. Petersburg man facing child porn charges

ST. PETERSBURG — A 43-year-old man is facing several criminal charges after investigators discovered he had several images of child pornography.

Law enforcement officials with the state's CyberCrime unit discovered the images during a routine investigation, according to the attorney general's office. They then traced them back to a computer belonging to Rodney Clair Gladd, of St. Petersburg, who was arrested Tuesday morning.

Authorities also seized three computers, more than 20 hard drives, multiple cameras, video tapes and CDs from Gladd's home.

He faces 15 counts of child porn possession, a second degree felony under the CyberCrimes Against Children Act. He was being held in the Pinellas County Jail in lieu of $150,000 bail.

    Nation

    LOS ANGELES — When O.J. Simpson told a Nevada parole board last week that he's led a "conflict-free life," he seemed to overlook a few episodes that had him cycling in and out of courtrooms and jail cells for nearly 20 years before the Las Vegas hotel-room heist that sent him to prison in 2008.

    Former NFL football star O.J. Simpson appears via video for his parole hearing at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nev., on Thursday, July 20, 2017.  Simpson was granted parole Thursday after more than eight years in prison for a Las Vegas hotel heist, successfully making his case in a nationally televised hearing that reflected America's enduring fascination with the former football star.
