Three Men around the Oklahoma City metro are behind bars Tuesday in separate cases involving child pornography.

An El Reno man is in jail Tuesday morning on child pornography charges. The Canadian County Sheriff's Department believes the man was distributing the pictures out of his home.

Detectives believe Enrique Sandoval was distributing pornographic images and videos of children to various areas in Oklahoma. And they say Sandoval admitted searching for and downloading child pornography.

During a forensic examination of his computer and internet history, detectives found 7,000 different search terms used to find child porn.

Sandoval is being held on a $25,000 bond. If convicted he could face up to 20 years in prison.

Also in the Canadian County Jail, a 23-year-old Oklahoma City man is behind bars, accused of posing as a young girl online to solicit sex from teenage boys.

Michael Goddard is facing numerous charges ranging from solicitation of sex from minors to possession of child pornography. He is accused of contacting teenage boys on Facebook in an effort to have sex with them.

Sheriff's deputies were able to track Goddard down after the mother of a 14-year-old Yukon boy contacted them. She told detectives that she found nude photos that her son had sent to a person who first appeared to be a girl his age.

After questioning her son, she learned that Goddard, who was posing as a young girl, was pursuing her son online, soliciting him for nude pictures and sex.

Deputies arrested Goddard at his workplace and confiscated his personal computer. Upon examination, detectives tell News 9, Goddard admitted to having contact with more than 100 young boys using the same method he used to lure the Yukon teen.

His Bond is set at $100,000, but that is expected to increase as other charges may be added.

Meanwhile, an employee of "The Edmond Sun" is also facing child pornography charges.

Jared Horton, 29, was arrested at the Family Dollar Store in Wewoka, Okla. on Friday.

Investigators told The Edmond Sun his sister's 6-year-old son found several flash drives inside Horton's backpack containing the images.

Horton has been living at his sister's home in Edmond recently.
