A 62-year-old Canton man facing child pornography charges made his first court appearance Wednesday.
Lincoln County States Attorney Tom Wollman says Neil Chaon was arrested Tuesday at his home in Canton on two counts of possession of child pornography.
Wollman says the arrest comes after detectives with the Division of Criminal Investigation conducted a search of file sharing networks. He adds at this point, they do not believe there are any local victims. The investigation is ongoing.
Wollman says Chaon worked as a janitor at Canton High School.
Chaon is being held in the Minnehaha County Jail. Bond was set at $2,500 during Wednesday's hearing via video conference. If he is released on bond, Chaon will not be allowed unsupervised contact with children, to visit places children frequent, or to use the internet.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for November.
