Sparta man facing child porn charges

More: Man who gave boy pacifier to muffle screams ordered to stand trial for assaults

SPARTA, Mich. -- A Sparta man is charged with manufacturing child pornography and criminal sexual conduct.

Michigan State Police say they received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children involving child exploitation.

Monday, Nov. 14, they used a search warrant to search the home of 22-year-old Tyler Lowis.

Troopers say they recovered evidence connecting Lowis to child sexually abusive material and criminal sexual conduct.

Documents we obtained allege Lowis filmed assaults with two boys, a 12 and 14-year-old. Detectives said they also located child pornography in Lowis's Dropbox account showing infant males.

The 14-year-old victim told police, Lowis put a pacifier in his mouth to muffle the screams during the sexual assault.

Lowis was arraigned Tuesday on three counts each of first degree criminal sexual conduct, manufacturing child sexually abusive material and using a computer to commit a crime.

Lowis is expected to be in court later this month for a probable cause hearing on nine felony charges.
