Man accused of placing camera in child’s bedroom

Borden man also charged with possession of child pornography

NEW ALBANY — A Borden man is accused of possessing child pornography and placing a video camera in a child’s bedroom.

Ronald E. Nance Jr., 53, has been charged with five counts of possession of child pornography, a class D felony, voyeurism, a class D felony, and possession of marijuana and paraphernalia, both class A misdemeanors.

According to probable cause affidavits, a 10-year-old was changing in her bedroom in December 2010 when she noticed a video camera recording on her dresser, hidden between her Beanie Babies. Nance had been asked to get the girl up for school for a week, according to the affidavits.

The video recording file was allegedly found later that month in Nance’s home. During a search of his home, officers also found five images of children, both girls and boys, shown in sexually explicit scenarios, some involving adults. Officers also found marijuana and paraphernalia during their search.

Nance was arrested Saturday on a warrant for failure to appear in court. No attorney was listed for Nance.

If convicted, Nance faces six months to three years for each D felony charge and up to one year for each A misdemeanor charge.
