Warsaw man accused of forcing young girls to watch porn

Warsaw, Ind. A Warsaw man is facing charges after he allegedly forced two young girls to watch porn last weekend.

Joseph Sturgill, 33, was arrested Thursday afternoon on two counts of child solicitation and another count of dissemination of matter harmful to minors -- all felonies.

Police say Sturgill made the seven and eight-year-olds look at pornographic videos and pictures last Saturday at this apartment near downtown Warsaw.

He's also accused of exposing his genitals to them.

Police say the girls are family friends of Sturgill and his wife.

Investigators took Sturgill's cell phone and expect additional charges to filed for a separate indecent exposure incident involving a woman.

And police believe these aren't the only crimes he's committed.

Anyone with information should call 574-372-9531.
