LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a Louisville man after they allegedly found child pornography in his possession.

It happened on Friday, Dec. 13, at 9:30 a.m., according to an arrest report.

According to the Kentucky Sex Offender Registry, James Everett Faler, age 47, is a convicted sex offender who moved to Kentucky from Iowa. The registry indicates that Faler has a previous conviction of third degree sexual abuse. The victims in that Iowa case were of ages 4 and 7, according to the registry.

On May 31, Faler was arrested in Louisville after he was found to be living on Church Court, south of Breckenridge Lane and Hikes Lane, according to court documents. Police say he had recently moved there from Iowa, and despite being a lifetime registrant of the sex offender registry in Iowa, he failed to properly follow federal law and notify probation and parole officials in Jefferson County, Ky., within five days of moving into the area.

At that time, he was arrested and charged with failing to comply with the sex offender registry. Upon that arrest, police said that the LMPD Crimes Against Children Unit would be investigating Faler, "due to material found incident to Faler's arrest."

That material resulted in brand new charges -- and another arrest of Faler -- over the weekend, according to a new arrest report. Among the items of personal property police seized after Faler's first arrest, officers allegedly found images of Faler's face "in very close proximity" to a boy's genitals.

Police say they also found printed images of nude boys.

The items of personal property were searched after police obtained a search warrant, according to the arrest report.

Faler was arrested Friday at his new place of residence on Bardstown Road, just south of the Watterson Expressway. He was charged with Use of a Minor in a Sexual Performance and Possession or Viewing of Matter Depicting the Sexual Performance of a Minor.
