A 34-year-old Elma man faces child rape and pornography possession charges after his young daughter told her family he touched her inappropriately.

Court records stated the girl told counselors and investigators late last year that her father had been touching her since preschool.

The father, who is not being named to protect the identity of his daughter, has been charged with first-degree child rape, which refers to children younger than 12. He also faces charges for possession of depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Family members learned of the abuse last summer when the girl mentioned the touching in passing, court records stated. The family took the girl to a counselor, who told them to call authorities.

Court records stated that during multiple interviews with investigators, the girl said her father touched her under her clothing, made her perform oral sex and touched her in other inappropriate ways.

“As the interview continued,” court records stated, “(the girl) also told the interviewer the defendant told her not to tell anyone about the touching.”

Search of computersInvestigators also searched the man’s Elma home and computers, according to court records. They found pornographic photos of children and explicit e-mails.

“Numerous images were discovered that depict minor children in sexually explicit situations,” court records stated, including photos from sites such as “Magic Lolita” and “Ukrainian Nymphets.”

Court records stated the photos included adults having sex with young girls and infants. In several e-mails from the man, he described himself as a “pedo” with involvement with online pedophile groups.The man was arrested late last month and is being held in Grays Harbor County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.
