MARICOPA — The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office is looking for additional victims after a man was arrested for 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

MCSO says 41-year-old David Legg was arrested in February for sexual exploitation of a minor (10 counts), and an outstanding felony arrest warrant out of South Dakota for sexual contact with a child under 16 (two counts).

According to court documents, Legg was found with numerous photos of child pornography after cyber crimes tips led police to his email address.

Legg is also accused of inappropriately touching the young child of a friend, and taking inappropriate photos of children while they were bathing.

Legg has already been identified by deputies as a potential suspect in other sex crime offenses in Maricopa and Pinal counties, and they believe there may still be additional unidentified child victims.

Anyone with further information should immediately contact MCSO Cyber Crime Detectives by calling 602-876-1011 or 602-876-TIPS (8477).
