Clovis man arrest for more than 100 images of child pornography

NewsChannel 10

Clovis, New Mexico - A Clovis man reportedly had more than 100 images of young children engaged in sexual acts on his computer.

He is in jail tonight facing 100 counts of sexual exploitation of children.

Curry and Roosevelt county sheriff's deputies arrested 56-year-old Keith Benoit at his Clovis home on Sandstone Drive yesterday.

Investigators say during a preliminary scan on Benoit's computer, they found 100 images of children in sexual acts.

The children range in age from 5-years-old to infants.

Authorities say they stopped there but will soon conduct a complete forensic computer analysis and more charges may be coming down the pipe.

Benoit is in the Curry County jail with a $500,000 bond.
