HUNTINGDON COUNTY, PA (WTAJ) – A registered sex offender in Huntingdon County faces additional child pornography charges.

It began on September 11, 2019 when Huntingdon Police were called to the behavioral health department at Penn Highlands Huntingdon after an employee reportedly viewed suspected pornography on one of the four cell phones Daughenbaugh was carrying.

A forensic laboratory analysis by the state police of the four telephones revealed around 1,000 images with suspected child pornography.

Daughenbaugh was charged by state police last year with alleged child pornography found on SD cards. State police said she was found at his home in Petersburg in December 2019. The search came after a soldier saw a suspected picture of child pornography on the screen of one of Daughenbaugh’s phones when he was arrested on December 11, 2019 on a pending warrant.

Daughenbaugh has been in custody since January 22, 2020. His bail in the State Police case is $ 500,000 in cash. He was denied bail on Friday when he was charged with the Huntingdon Police Department.

Daughenbaugh is a registered sex offender and was convicted of child pornography and unlawful contact with a minor in 2010.
