TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A registered sex offender, Edgar Allen Fristoe has been sentenced to 170 years in prison for sexual exploitation of a minor, according to a news release from the Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich. 

The case began back in November 2016, when a tip about child pornography being uploaded to a Google photos account was sent to the Tucson Police Department by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.  This led to an investigation and TPD learning that Fristoe was the registered owner of the Google account.  

According to the news release, Fristoe had a prior felony conviction in 1981 in Prescott, for attempted sexual conduct with a minor and another case in Oklahoma in 2001 for indecent exposure.  

Detectives using a search warrant discovered several pictures and videos of child pornography on Fristoe's cell phone.  According to TPD using forensic analysis of his phone, detectives learned that he had also transmitted the child pornography to other people via a messaging service.  All the victims in the photos and videos were under the age of 15.
