Man faces life in prison after bringing his phone in for repairs

HOLLAND, Mich. -- A 911 call from a phone repair shop in Holland is now leading to felony charges for a man police say sexually assaulted an 11-year old girl.

The allegations are disturbing: recording sexual acts taking place over an eight month time frame.

According to police, Lowell Charles, 56, turned his phone in for repairs and an employee spotted what he believed to be child pornography on the phone. Police moved quick to get a warrant and make an arrest.

That Metro P.C.S. worker helped lead police to Charles. Police would learn the photos and videos were recorded at a separate home in Holland. Neighbors nearby say they noticed something seemed off and now wish they'd done something to stop it.
