A father was horrified when he found nude photos of a young child in his son’s phone.

Paul Spensberger of O’Fallon, Missouri, turned his son, 17-year-old Andrew, in to the police after finding photographs of a nude and sleeping child on the teenager’s phone.

The photos were of a 2-year-old girl who is known to the family and she was sleeping on the floor in the teen’s bedroom.

Andrew allegedly removed the child’s diaper and took photos at close range while the girl was sleeping.

Spensberger said that he found the photos after confiscating his son’s phone as punishment for misbehaving.

When questioned, Andrew, who reportedly goes to a special school for behavioral issues, said that he took the photographs with the intention of selling them to a high school classmate who he believed was a pedophile.

He said he expected to get $330 for the photos so he can repay a debt.

Andrew was arrested on charges of child pornography.
He remains in the county jail on $10,000 bail.
