Guilty plea in Olmsted County child porn case

Logan Adler

Stewartville man reaches plea deal with authorities

ROCHESTER, Minn. – A Stewartville man is pleading guilty to possessing child pornography.

The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office was notified in March of someone in the county uploading child pornography to the servers of an internet services company. An investigation of online accounts and IP addresses connected the porn to 21-year-old Logan Solomon Adler.

Adler was interviewed in June by the Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office and investigators say he admitted to trading sexually explicit images and videos of people he thought were under 18. Adler told investigators they should not find any pornography in his home because he had deleted it all as part of a religious-based pornography addiction program.

However, law enforcement says a search of several electronic devices seized at Adler’s home found 32 separate files containing 13 distinct images of child pornography.

Adler was originally charged with one count of disseminating pornographic work and 13 counts of possessing pornography. He pleaded guilty to three possession charges and the other counts have been dismissed.
Adler is scheduled to be sentenced on January 8.
