MARQUETTE, MI— A Marquette man has been arrested for possessing child pornography.

The Michigan State Police Computer Crimes Unit, Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, says Samuel Numikoski, 49, was arrested after digital evidence was seized from his home. The investigation was initiated after police learned he was viewing child pornographic material on the internet.

Numikoski is charged with 12 counts of aggravated possession of child sexually abusive material, one count of possession of child sexually abusive material, and 13 counts of using a computer to commit a crime.

He faces up to 24 years in prison, if convicted.
