Stanley Man Faces Additional Child Sexual Assault Charges

66-year-old Carl David Holt of Stanley now faces additional child sexual assault charges. He was initially arrested in February of this year.

Holt was charged following an investigation that began in October of 2023 after the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office received a report regarding possible child abuse. The investigation uncovered allegations of sexual assault.

Detectives obtained a search warrant and seized a cell phone belonging to Holt. During a forensic download of the device, Holt was found to be in possession of images depicting child sexual abuse. He was charged with two counts each of statutory sexual offense and second-degree exploitation of a child, along with one count of third-degree exploitation of a child.

At the time of his initial arrest in February, Holt was charged with four counts of indecent liberties with a child and two counts of statutory sexual offense. The victims were known to Holt and were juveniles at the time of the incidents.

Holt is being held in the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center under a $150,000 secured bond. He’ll appear in Lincoln County District Court on April 30.
