A Glades County man was arrested Thursday on several counts of child pornography.

Robert John Etgeton, 44, of Muse was arrested by special agents with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement on 20 counts of possession of child pornography. Due to the number of images and the sexual battery of children depicted in them, each count qualifies to be enhanced to second-degree felonies.

FDLE agents and the Glades County Sheriff’s Office first searched Etgeton’s residence on Nov. 13 and found a personal computer containing the child pornography. He was taken into custody after forensic examinations of the computer uncovered hundreds of images of children, including infants, involved in sex acts.

Etgeton was booked into the Glades County Jail.
