NEWARK, Delaware — The Delaware Attorney General's Office say a man charged last year with dealing in child pornography has been indicted on 144 new counts, including rape.
Authorities say 43-year-old John Figura of Newark was indicted Monday on charges of sexual exploitation of a child between 1998 and 2007. Figura was also indicted for second-degree rape and unlawful sexual contact in the alleged physically assault of two young girls in 2007.
Officials say the continuing investigation after Figura was charged in December 2012 with 25 counts of dealing in child pornography turned up hundreds of thousands of child pornography files on computers seized from his home.
Figura remains held on $1.5 million bail.
