Howell man charged with molesting boy

HOWELL, Mich (WLNS) – A Livingston County man who was already charged with possessing child pornography now faces additional charges for allegedly molesting a 9-year-old boy.

32-year-old Erik Lopez-Ferreyra of Howell was arrested and charged with possessing child porn after investigators found a thumb-drive with images in the home where he lives with his mother.

Our media partners at WHMI report that Lopez-Ferreyra claimed that he only downloaded music and movie files but sometimes images he described as “bad things” would appear.

Howell Police had notified the FBI last month that they were investigating allegations that Lopez-Ferreyra had sexually molested a 9-year-old boy in the summer of 2013.

Lopez-Ferreyra is in federal custody awaiting a preliminary exam next month.
