CLARION, Iowa – A not guilty plea is entered in Wright County to 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Timothy Roberts, 49 of Rowan, is accused of possession and distribution of child pornography. He was arrested on August 3 after an investigation the Wright County Sheriff’s Office says began with a cyber tip to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Authorities say Roberts used a social media service to transmit photos of nude minor females and a search of his computer in April found images of nude minor females with exposed genitals.

Roberts pleaded not guilty Friday. His trial is set to start on November 15.
