GARNER, Iowa – A Britt man is pleading not guilty to child pornography charges.

Seth Edward Buck, 37, was arrested on March 27 on three felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and four aggravated misdemeanor counts of possessing an image of a minor in a sex act. His arrest comes after an investigation where the Wright County Sheriff’s Office says Buck’s computer was seized during a search on June 15, 2106, and was found to contain multiple images of underage females in sexual situations.

Buck is accused of acquiring those images between February 4 and June 15 in 2016.

Though court documents say the investigation happened in the middle of 2016, criminal charges were not filed against Buck until March 26. He entered a not guilty plea on Monday.
