CORDES LAKES, Ariz. -- A convicted sex offender has been arrested for possessing pornographic photos of children.

Larry Dean Dick, 58, was convicted in 1984 for child molestation in Maricopa County and in June for three counts of failure to register as a sex offender.

On July 28, a Yavapai County probation officer conducted a visit with Dick at his Cordes Lakes home and discovered child pornography images on his laptop computer.

In an interview with a Yavapai County Sheriff's Office detective, Dick admitted visiting teen sex Internet sites.

The detective found at least 13 images portraying child pornography involving males and females.

On Wednesday, Dick was charged with 13 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Dick remains in custody at the Camp Verde Detention Center.
