Lorrie Elmer Mecham – Repeat Sex Offender – Uses Cooler to hide his perversion

A Mountain Home man has been found guilty of receiving sexually explicit images of minors and three counts of possessing sexually explicit images of minors, the U.S. Attorney’s office said Friday.

An investigation began in 2007 when the wife of Lorrie Elmer Mecham, 69, found a cooler filled with hundreds of floppy discs and CDs hidden in the crawl space of their home. Investigators found tens of thousands of child images including sexually explicit pictures of minors ranging from toddlers to teens.

They also found non-pornographic photos of his family.

Mecham was convicted of child molestation in Georgia in 1987 when he admitted to molesting two girls, age seven and nine.

Mecham’s sentencing will be held Aug. 24. Each charge carries a maximum sentence of up to 45 years.
