Pinellas County detectives have arrested a Largo man on child pornography charges based on accusations that he snapped nude photos of a young girl. James Rybicki, 44, was arrested Thursday night on two charges of child pornography and one charge of lewd or lascivious conduct, according to Pinellas County Sheriff's Office arrest records. Detectives began investigating Rybicki after the girl's mother called authorities. The girl told a detective that Rybicki showed her pictures of nude girls, which were on his computer, according to an arrest report. The child said Rybicki then took photos of her in which he pulled up her skirt, pulled her underwear down and pulled up her shirt, arrest reports state. A detective later found photos of two nude preteen girls on Rybicki's computer, according to the arrest report. Rybicki was being held at the Pinellas County jail Friday evening on $25,000 bail.
