COPY-Beatrice man arrested for possession of child pornography

A student at Southeast Community College's Milford campus has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child pornography.

The Nebraska State Patrol says 21-year-old Spencer Corter of Beatrice was arrested following a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The tip alleged a person claiming to be a 16-year-old boy was uploading sexually explicit images on several social networking accounts.

The patrol says Corter's laptop and other items were seized in April, and he was arrested Wednesday. Corter was being held Thursday in the Seward County jail.
