A Salem man is being held on $140,000 bail on child porn and online sexual corruption of a child charges Thursday.

Patrick Ryan Johnson, 36, was arrested on two counts of second-degree online sexual corruption of a child and six counts of first-degree encouraging child sexual abuse.

According to a secret indictment filed in Marion County, Johnson allegedly used online communication to solicit a child to engage in sexual contact and to physically meet with the child. He is also accused of duplicating multiple photos of sexually explicit conduct involving a child.

Johnson was previously convicted of reckless burning in 2012 and sentenced to two years probation.

Following his arrest Thursday, he was taken to Marion County jail and ordered to have no contact with his young female victim.
