People confirmed the news after Yester was arrested by the Attorney General’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit on Thursday. He was later released from Boone County Jail on a US$35,000 bond on the very same day.
The 74-year-old star famous for hits such as ‘Do You Believe in Magic’ is facing 30 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing sexually explicit material involving a child.
Yester’s alleged activities first came to the attention of authorities after discovering someone was using a computer at his address to download child pornography.
The case will now be handed to 14th Judicial District Prosecutor David Ethredge for further investigation.
