RACINE — A Racine man is accused of four counts of possession of child pornography after a lost phone led police to images he alleged kept on it.

Jared Overturf, 24, of 1924 Green St., also known as Oddise Miller, was charged in Racine County Circuit Court with possession of child pornography, a Class D felony. According to the criminal complaint, on April 19 someone found a phone left on a bench outside of Kenny’s tavern, 1300 N. Main St. When the phone’s finder looked at the memory card from the broken phone on his computer, he found it contained sexually suggestive images of both adults and children.

Police who investigated found 69 still images on the memory card and one video, the complaint stated, including four that were of nude or nearly nude girls. Police estimated their ages at 10-15. The photos were dated April 12-19.

Police eventually made contact with Overturf on Sept. 6 at the Racine County Jail after he’d been arrested on outstanding warrants from Minnesota, the complaint stated.

If Overturf is convicted, he could be fined up to $100,000 per count, or imprisoned for up to 25 years or both. He was being held in the jail Thursday.
