A White Pine Dr. resident has been charged with two child pornography charges.

Dalton Konat was charged with Pandering Obscenity Involving a Minor and Illegal Use of Minor in Nudity-oriented Material.

Konat’s girlfriend notified the Clark County Sheriff’s office when she saw pictures of her 11-year-old daughter on Konat’s phone.

According to the Sheriff’s report, the girlfriend said that she had suspected Konat of cheating on her, so when he took a nap, she got his phone and looked at it. She found that the SD card had been removed. She said she looked in Konat’s wallet and found the card wrapped in paper. She said she put the card into her phone and saw the images.

Deputies received permission to search the residence and found Konat’s phone.

At first, Konat denied taking pictures of the juvenile, and said that his girlfriend was trying to set him up so he would go to jail.

Deputies searched through the phone, and with the assistance of the reporting party, found the images of the juvenile in the shower. They also found a video of Konat setting up a camera on the toilet and placing other items around it to hide it.

Konat was shown a still photo of him setting up the camera and told detectives that he has a problem.

Konat plead innocent at his arraignment on Monday morning in Clark County Municipal Court and is being held in the Clark County Jail on $30,000 bond.
