Murphysboro man arrested on twenty counts of child pornography

A 70-year-old Murphysboro man, arrested twice in two weeks, could now spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Eric Deutsch was first arrested on November 16 and charged with growing cannabis inside of home.

Murphysboro police say while they were executing that search warrant, they found electronic devices that they believed to contain child pornography.

After examining those devices, police arrested Deutsch again Tuesday, this time charging him with twenty counts of child pornography.

He faces decades in prison.
