Police arrested an Ashland man on child pornography charges on Tuesday. The man lives in the same house that also serves as a home-based kindergarten on Jaquelyn Street. Police say 32-year-old Benjamin Beauregard Mycko was lodged in the Jackson County Jail and charged with multiple counts of encouraging child sex abuse. Investigators with the Southern Oregon High Tech Crimes Task Force say Mycko was engaged in trading child pornography online. Police don't believe he had any contact with children who attend the kindergarten, but are continuing to investigate.
