Manfred Joseph Danziger of Sand Coulee appeared in court in Great Falls on Wednesday on child pornography charges.

Danziger faces 10 counts of sexual abuse of children after federal agents seized two computers from his home.

In November of 2014, agents contacted the Great Falls Police Department about an IP (internet protocol) address that was suspected of being used to download child porn.

Court documents state that Danziger was found to be the owner of the address.

In January, agents and a Great Falls police detective contacted Danziger at his home and spoke with him about the investigation.

According to court documents, Danziger first denied looking at child porn but then said he had downloaded some accidentally.

Danziger reportedly later admitted to downloading child porn but told investigators he did not like the "violent stuff."

Danziger consented to a search of several computers and a forensic examination identified 41 possible child porn files.

Charging documents identify 10 files that were confirmed to be child porn.
