KAYSVILLE — A registered sex offender in Utah who has been convicted of crimes against children was arrested again Wednesday for allegedly possessing child pornography, according to police.

Michael John Wilkinson, 52, of Kaysville, was arrested for investigation of eight counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

The Utah Attorney General’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force served a search warrant at Wilkinson’s home Wednesday morning and found child porn on at least one of his electronic devices, according to a police affidavit.

The arresting officer noted in the affidavit that “Michael is on parole for sex offenses involving rape and has a history of sex crimes against children.”

According to court records, he was convicted of sex abuse of a child in 2001 and sentenced to one to 15 years in the Utah State Prison. He was convicted of attempted forcible sexual abuse in 2015 and sentenced to up to five years in prison.

The affidavit states Wilkinson was also charged with forcible sodomy and sex abuse of a child in 1987.
