Accused of abusing an infant, a Bismarck man is now charged with possession of child pornography as the result of a deepening investigation.

Andrew Glasser, 32, was charged Thursday with 10 felony counts of possession of certain materials prohibited after the investigation into a female infant's physical and sexual abuse.

Officers of Bismarck Police and North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation have investigated Glasser, reportedly finding sexually explicit pictures and videos of children ages 5 to 16 on a laptop alleged to be his.

If convicted, his new charges carry a mandatory minimum of sex offender registration. 

Glasser is already charged in two cases with felony counts of child abuse, tampering with physical evidence and gross sexual imposition related to the infant abuse.

The case's investigation stems from a hospital exam last month that noted the infant's injuries.

Bismarck Police arrested Glasser Thursday evening. He is held at the Burleigh-Morton County Detention Center, pending $25,000 cash bond.

He is to have no contact with children and must remain in Burleigh and Morton counties.

His next court date is Dec. 4.
