Man charged with sex abuse

Thu., Feb. 26, 2009

A transient faces charges of video voyeurism and child sex abuse after Kootenai County Sheriff’s Department investigators found pictures and videos on a stolen computer that had already landed him in jail.

Darryl P. Sheets, 46, was charged with the additional crimes Tuesday after being in the Kootenai County Jail since September on stolen property charges, jail records show.

A computer seized as evidence had photos showing Sheets with a girl about 13 years old, as well as videos of the girl using a bathroom that he shot without her knowledge, said Kootenai County sheriff’s Capt. Ben Wolfinger.

Sheets was a friend of the victim’s parents, Wolfinger said. He remained in jail on $75,000 bond.
