— A Cary man faces felony charges for child pornography depicting sex crimes and torturous acts against children ranging from 6 months to 6 years old.

Andrew Stephen Lazetera, 27, of 24301 Havers Drive, was charged with 18 counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

Cary police Capt. Randall Rhyne said Tuesday that investigators received a cyber-tip through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and that Lazetera surrendered on Monday.

He remained in the Wake County Detention Center under a $1 million bond Tuesday night after a Wake County District Court judge refused to lower it.

Lazetera has retained a private attorney, Rosemary Godwin, who could not be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon.

    Funny how there's a giant dude towering behind him in the video link still shot. He better get used to that in prison!

    There seems to be a lot of this sort of thing coming out of the Cary area. What's up with that????

    Was answering someone below who asked how he got access to the children.

    There was a recent study done that said that 26 percent of men are sexually attracted to female children ages 2-12. Now whether they act on it is another issue but I wasn't surprised by that number.

    This is sooooo sick, just brought tears to my eyes reading this article. 6mos to 6 years old, I am lost for words, good job to the people involved catching people like this. Prayers for the children that are treated this way. Sure hope there is help for them, God bless them, they will need support as they get older..What is this world coming to.

    The deal is that we have a Cyber Crimes Unit that does a bang up job finding these pervs and charging them with their crimes. Seems like Raleigh, and Durham could take a page from their book.

    Sure, he didn't take the pictures himself, but he is a part of the problem by helping create the demand for such pictures. Only slightly less dastardly.
