From child porn to dog sex, Lakeland man’s computer turns up sickening images

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said he was particularly disgusted by this latest child porn case.

LAKELAND — When an investigation started in July, leading to the arrest of Clint Charles Englund, it was disturbing enough, the Polk County Sheriff’s Office noted, that his computer contained images of very young children being sexually abused by adults.
The sheriff’s office was even more sickened to learn he also kept images of people having sex with dogs.
“Post Miranda, Englund admitted to downloading images of child pornography, which he said he would later delete,” noted Carrie E. Horstman, public information officer for the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, in her report on the arrest. “Englund stated the youngest child he has ever seen involved in child pornography is approximately five years of age.”
In addition, “Englund told detectives he was curious about bestiality and had viewed videos containing bestiality — but ‘doesn’t recall’ ever viewing any videos involving children,” Horstman noted.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd was quick to note his complete disgust with this case.
“There are no words to describe the types of people who create, distribute, and possess images and videos such as these,” Judd noted. “Everyone involved in this crime needs to be locked up, and we will continue our investigation to try to identify these victims, and those responsible for creating these heinous images and videos.”
After undercover detectives learned in July that Englund might be in possession of child pornography, the sheriff’s office opened an investigation that led to a search warrant being issued at his Lakeland home, and then his arrest, on Friday, Aug. 1.
Polk County Sheriff’s Office Computer Crimes detectives arrested Englund, 44, of 310 Palmola St. in Lakleland and charged him with four counts of possession of child pornography. He was booked into the Polk County Jail, then bonded out.
“Located in Englund’s bedroom was a desktop computer,” Horstman noted in her report. “A forensic preview of the computer revealed four videos of pre-pubescent children involved in sexual conduct. The videos were graphic and depicted children engaged in sex with other children, adult males, and a dog.”
On Aug. 6, an extensive forensic examination of his computer equipment turned up even more incriminating evidence, detectives noted, and the sheriff’s office filed an additional 48 counts of possession of child pornography against Englund. He was re-arrested and booked back into the Polk County Jail.
“During the analysis of his computer, detectives located two additional videos and 52 images depicting the sexual performance of children,” Horstman wrote. “The victims depicted in the videos and images were approximately 3 to 10 years of age, with at least four of the images depicting children younger than 3 years of age being sexually abused by an adult.”
He remains in jail on no bond.
