UPDATED: Wednesday January 23, 2013 7:50 AM

The Hocking County Sheriff's Department arrested a man on child pornography charges on Monday.

Authorities said Martin E. Seelig, 55, was arrested at his residence on Bear Run Road in Logan.

Detectives served a warrant at the home after they received information that Seelig was engaged in a conversation online with a person that was offering their 12-year-old daughter for sex.

Investigators said they found images of children from ages 8 to 18 on Seelig's computer and cell phone.

Seelig admitted to having the images but said he was naive of the law, according to authorities.

Seelig faces one count of illegal use of a minor in a nudity oriented material or performance.
