According to the criminal complaint, a Watertown Police Officer investigated a CyberTip report made about two Google accounts that uploaded illegal images. The investigation, which began in July, showed the images were emailed to Osborn.

Osborn was pulled over by Watertown police for a registration violation on Wednesday. According to the criminal complaint, Osborn agreed to speak to detectives and admitted to owning the Google Pixel phone. He said he had issues with pornography since he was a teen and had first viewed child pornography five years prior.

The preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for Oct. 28.
