James Lamb wanted to face porn charges in Monroe County.

A Delaware Water Gap man wanted on charges of child pornograrphy turned himself into authorities Wednesday morning.

Monroe County authorities had issued an arrest warrant for 54-year-old James Lamb last week after his wife Jana Lamb discovered numerous photos on his computer of children having sex.

She turned the computer in to the office of the district attorney's detective division, who found 86 photographs and one video of child pornography saved on the computer, as well as evidence that Lamb had been trading images of child pornography with others by using instant messaging software.

Authorities were unable to locate Lamb, who had learned of the allegations against him, officials said. Lamb obtained an attorney who contacted detectives to arrange for Lamb's surrender.

He faces charges of possessing child pornography and criminal use of communication facility.

He was arraigned Wednesday and released on $25,000 unsecured bail. A preliminary hearing has been set for Dec. 12 at 10 a.m.
