CHINA — A China man was arrested Monday and charged with possessing sexually explicit material of someone younger than 12 years old.

Jeffery George, 38, was arrested at his Dirigo Road home and taken to the Kennebec County jail. He is scheduled to appear in court on July 20.

A release from Steve McCausland, state Department of Public Safety spokesperson, said George’s electronic devices were analyzed after they were seized in March by investigators. George also is a lifetime registrant on Maine’s sex offender list.

The State Police Computer Crimes Unit worked with Homeland Security to make the arrest, according to McCausland’s release.
