The affidavit says that Coe admitted that he stored the images on three computers  in the basement of his home, and shared those images and videos with other people on the internet.

According to the affidavit, Coe was born in 1945.

Magistrate Limbert ordered that Coe be held in custody until another hearing scheduled for September 4.
