Oakland man convicted of possessing child porn arrested again on similar charges

OAKLAND (KRON) — An Oakland man is facing child pornography charges for the second time after authorities found hundreds of images in his apartment, according to court documents.

Fifty-one-year-old Lawrence Ham was convicted of possessing child pornography in 2011 after he plead guilty to having over 600 images of child pornography, the Alameda County District Attorney said. He was arrested Tuesday after Alameda County sheriff’s deputies found the images on his computer and printed images in his bedroom, according to an affidavit by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.

The children in the photos were as young as 5 years old, the affidavit said.

Ham was on probation when he was arrested Tuesday, authorities said.

Ham is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday afternoon.
