When asked why he would view child pornography, Jerry Moses said, "I don't know. It was on there. The internet. I didn't think anything was wrong with it."

In his own words, 70-year-old Moses admits to viewing graphic images of children in a sexual nature.

"I took some pornography off of the internet on the computer and I did have possession of it," said Moses." I knew it was morally wrong but I didn't know it was legally wrong." 

The Anniston man was arrested and charged with possessing child porn.  Police were first informed about the collection May 24 from someone on the 300 block of Elm Street. 

The tipster told police they borrowed a camera from Moses and saw multiple nude pictures of children, including one of their 2-year-old relative.

Moses said he took the picture at the request of a family member.
 
"The child's mama was wanting me to take a picture of her nude and put it on a cd and give it to her as a keepsake. But anyway, I was going to do that and I forgot about it." said Moses. 

Police took a laptop, desktop computer, camera and over 75 cd's and dvd's from Moses' house where he said he has been collecting the images for several years.

In retrospect, he realizes what he did was wrong, but he feels he isn't the sexual predator some have made him out to be. 

"I ain't never been no predator. I didn't show nobody nothing. I didn't sell nothing. I was just keeping them," said Moses.
