MCSO: Phoenix man, Donald J. Turk, arrested on child porn charges

PHOENIX - Maricopa County Sheriff's Office officials say a Phoenix man is behind bars after deputies found more than 600 images of child pornography on his computer.

MCSO spokesman Brandon Jones said 33-year-old Donald J. Turk was arrested Thursday at his home near 43rd and Southern Avenues.

Jones said deputies found 644 disturbing images and videos of adults having sex with underage girls as young as three years old on Turk's computer.

Jones said at Turk's home, which he lives with his mom and dad, deputies also found stacks of porn on VHS tapes and DVDs which all members of the house allegedly watched.

Deputies said when they questioned Turk, he admitted he needed professional help because he cannot stop viewing porn.

Jones said Turk also told deputies, he was glad he was "never left alone with his nieces."

Turk was charged with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, which is a Class 2 felony.
