So Beautiful And Young

MARCH 5--When cops search your home and find it overflowing with child pornography, there are probably better explanations than the one offered Tuesday by William Westberg.

The Florida pervert, 63, told investigators that he was 'only looking at the images because the children were so beautiful and young,' according to a Lake County Sheriff's Office report. Westberg, a Home Depot tool salesman, acknowledged that he 'masturbated to these images of the children in the past.'

Westberg, pictured in the mug shot at left, was charged with 50 counts of felony possession of child pornography. He is being held in the county jail in lieu of $250,000 bail. (2 pages)
