Salisbury man charged with child porn, secretly taping women

“We’ve just touched the tip of the iceberg of reviewing the digital evidence,” King said.

At his arraignment yesterday, Bailey spoke in great detail of the web of lies and deceit spun by Anderson to lure the female victims to his beach house and the great lengths he took to purchase pin-sized cameras and set them up in the house. She spoke of his soon-to-be ex-wife who found the disturbing images of their nieces in a computer file titled “Friends and Family,” and how additional charges against Anderson would likely be filed. Bailey also said Anderson’s wife recently found a doctor’s bag and medical equipment, a box filled with pin cameras and fake receipts and questionnaires to be filled out by victims.

“Anytime we get another search warrant, we get more images,” Bailey said.

Court-appointed defense attorney Anthony Papoulias Jr. called Bailey’s bail demand excessive, arguing that since Anderson was released on bail last month, he hasn’t tried to flee the country and he has been accessible whenever needed.

“He didn’t try to hide,” said Papoulias, who instead asked for $10,000 cash bail. “I think a $500,000 bail is way over the top.”

But Judge Peter Doyle wasn’t convinced and seconds later agreed to the state’s $500,000 bail request. Should Anderson make bail, he will be required to stay away and have no contact with his alleged victims. He is due back in court on Jan. 7 for a probable cause hearing.

If found guilty of possession of child pornography, Anderson could be sentenced to five years in state prison and a $10,000 fine and would have to register as a sex offender with the state. The penalty for unlawfully recording a nude or partially nude person is up to 2 1/2 years in jail and a $5,000 fine for each charge.

According to Anderson’s profile on the business networking site Powerprofiles.com, he is listed as a commercial photographer with a Shepard Hill Road address in Newtown. Other sites indicate that the commercial photography business is now closed.
