Registered sex offender arrested for child pornography

Lincoln police have arrested a registered sex offender for making and possessing child pornography.
 
Lincoln police say 41-year-old James Magarahan was arrested Wednesday for Manufacturing Child Pornography and Possession of Child Pornography. A search warrant was served at his apartment on August 26, 2010 and multiple electronic items were seized.  An investigation led to the discovery of still photos and videos of two females, partially nude.  One female was 17 years of age.  Police believe the images were taken at his residence during a game of 'Truth or Dare.'
 
Police say they received information from two separate individuals that had seen images of nude females on Magarahan's computer.
 
This is not James' first offense of this nature.  He is a registered sex offender (15 year) and was sentenced to 300 days in 2000 on Possession of Child Pornography charges.
