Fargo man held on 22 counts of possessing child porn

FARGO – A Fargo man is being held on $50,000 bail after being charged with 22 counts of possessing child pornography, some of which involved children between the ages of 1 and 3.

Aaron James Olson, 34, was arrested Tuesday at his home at 4325 47th St. S. after Fargo police executed a search warrant, said Fargo Deputy Chief Pat Claus.

Court documents state that police found DVDs and a computer containing child pornography at the home, and that during a police interview, Olson told a detective he was addicted to pornography. About 30 percent of his pornography featured children, documents state.

Olson was charged in Cass County District Court Thursday with 22 counts of possession of certain prohibited materials, a Class C felony.

Olson is being held on $50,000 bail at the Cass County Jail. His next appearance is set for May 16.
