Slippery Rock man charged with having sexual contact with three boys ages 3, 7 and 13
A Slippery Rock man arrested Thursday on child pornography charges said in a written statement to investigators that he had sexual contact with three boys on 30 occasions and took nude pictures of them, according to court documents.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Cynthia Eddy on Tuesday ordered Mark Beres, 53, held without bail until a grand jury indicts him. Beres, an optometrist at the Sears in New Castle, said he had over 10,000 images of child porn on his computer, including pictures of the boys, who are ages 3, 7 and 13.
The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is asking anyone with information about the case to call investigators at 412-490-6513.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
