Ketchikan man arrested on child pornography charges


July 23, 2010

Ketchikan, Alaska - Alaska State Troopers responded to a report Wednesday evening of a hidden camera that was discovered wired into a teenager's room at a residence on Strawberry Road, which transmitted to a video recorder in a separate part of the house.

When confronted by the complainant about the hidden camera, Jose Diorec III, age 35 of Ketchikan, reportedly grabbed the video cassette, destroyed it, and threw the film into the woods. Troopers responded, and a subsequent investigation led to Diorec's arrest for possession of child pornography and tampering with physical evidence.

Diorec was remanded to Ketchikan Corrections Center without incident. He has no bail.

Any charges are merely accusations and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
