Seahawks employee charged with possession of child porn

SPD says suspect admitted to having 25,000 sexual depictions of a minor in his Renton home.

Seattle Seahawks security manager Aaron Miyasato was charged Jan. 13 with possessing and dealing sexually explicit depictions of a minor.

The 41-year-old man was arrested after his Renton home was raided by Seattle Police SWAT early on Tuesday, Jan. 12. The police were able to obtain a warrant following a series of cyber tips alerting authorities of suspicious activity by Miyasato, according to the Certification for Determination of Probable Cause.

After being apprehended, police reports claim he was cooperative with police, admitting to having about 25,000 depictions of sexual abuse to minors. He also helped police find the devices that contain the contraband and even provided the passcodes.

The King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office asked that Miyasato be held on $50,000 bail. A judge agreed.

His first time in court in this case would be his arraignment, where he will enter a plea. The arraignment is scheduled for 9 a.m. Jan. 21 in the GA courtroom of the Maleng Regional Justice Center in Kent.

These charges are the first Internet crimes against children case filed this year by the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, and it follows what prosecutors say is an unusually high number of cases filed in 2020. Last year through Dec. 10, the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office filed 64 cases involving Internet crimes against children. That’s compared to 48 cases filed in all of 2019.
