Formal charges filed in child-pornography case


WALLA WALLA -- Formal charges were filed Tuesday against a man arrested last weekend for allegedly possessing child pornography.

Thomas E. Nicewaner III, 37, is accused in Superior Court of six counts of possession of depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

He is accused of possessing six images of child pornography on media cards, cell phones or other items in his possession that police allegedly discovered Saturday.

He also is charged with possessing two medications without a prescription and less than 40 grams of marijuana.

Nicewaner was arrested Saturday at the Vineyard Inn, 325 E. Main St., where he apparently had been staying. Bail was set at $75,000.
