Prosecutors say 58-year-old Mohamad Nazir Ahmad faces charges of criminal sexual act, three counts of creating child pornography, and three counts of possessing child pornography.
WHAM –(H/T DE)– Rochester, NY, Prosecutor Kristina Karle says the allegation is that Ahmad had sexual contact with a girl when she was 13 and he recorded it, and possessed it on a camera he had. Karle says Ahmad is a U.S. government employee working for the Defense Department as an interpreter.
She says, “we requested that the defendant be held without bail based on the fact that he was born in Afghanistan, he does I believe travel as part of his job, he has connections to other countries, his family lives in Canada.”
Bail was set at $100,000 dollars and if Ahmad posts that bail he’ll have to surrender his passport.
Karle says Ahmad faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted on charges of criminal sexual act.
