BROKEN BOW, Neb. (AP)

A 41-year-old Aurora man has been accused of child porn manufacture in Custer County.
Court records say Ross Carstensen is charged with five counts of visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct. Carstensen's attorney, Clarence Mock III, said Thursday that Carstensen will plead not guilty because he was engaged in ``legal, consensual adult activity.''
Earlier this month a Hamilton County sexual assault charge against Carstensen was dismissed. The records say that information from that case led investigators to the girl involved in the porn case.        

She told investigators she'd exchanged messages with a man she knew as Brandon Thompson on Facebook but who investigators say was Carstensen. The records say he persuaded her to send him sexually explicit photos between March 1, 2015, and April 30, 2015, when she was 17.
