A Gearhart man has been accused of crimes related to child pornography.
Samuel Roy Polan, 39, allegedly compelled a child to engage in sexually explicit activity and either recorded it or took a photograph. He then allegedly attempted to sell the material.
Polan has been charged with using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct and first-degree encouraging child sex abuse. Bail has been set at $500,00. He will be arraigned in Circuit Court on Friday if indicted.
