Former candidate for auditor arrested on child porn charges

A former candidate for auditor has been arrested on child porn charges.

62-year-old Richard Korn of Hockessin faces more than a dozen counts counts of dealing in child pornography after police conducted a search of his computer during an investigation.

Police say they seized electronics and evidence while executing a search warrant Friday at Korn's home on the 1000 block of Old Lancaster Pike, which lead to the discovery of 25 images of child pornography on his computer.

Korn has been committed to the Howard Young after failing to post $750,000 bail.

He's also been ordered to have no contact with anyone under 18 years old.

In addition to auditor, Korn has launched unsuccessful election bids for county executive in 2004 and the state house in 2006
