A 32-year-old South Nashville man is charged with sexual exploitation of minors for keeping at least 174 child pornography photos on his home computer, according to Metro Police.

Police said Clayton Cassidy McGee asked his father to retrieve his home computer and external hard drive from his Philfre Court mobile home while he was jailed on a domestic assault charge. McGee's father took the equipment home, discovered child pornography, and brought the computer hardware to police headquarters.

Detectives say they believe the children in the photos reviewed thus far range in age from 6 to 12. The forensic examination on McGee's computer is continuing. Hundreds of other child porn pictures appear to have been saved, police said. Additional charges are likely.

McGee's bond on the sexual exploitation charge is set at $30,000.

McGee was arrested Aug. 13 for domestic assault against his girlfriend. His bond is set at $5,000 on that charge, police said.
