SALT LAKE CITY — A registered sex offender with convictions in two prior sex offense cases has been arrested again.

Jordan Theodore Reyling, 34, of Salt Lake City, was booked into the Salt Lake County Jail on Thursday and charged Friday in 3rd District Court with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony.

Between August and November, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children reported suspected child pornography was uploaded to three email accounts.

The Utah Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children task force learned that Reyling was associated with all three accounts, according to a police affidavit.

“Reyling admitted to sending child pornography to other users. Reyling also admitted to discussing about sexually abusing female children between the ages of 5-13,” he told police when questioned, according to the affidavit. “Reyling admitted to fantasizing about having sex with children.”

In 2012, Reyling was convicted in Summit County of two counts of voyeurism. He was originally charged with numerous counts of sexual exploitation of a minor after child pornography was found on his laptop, charging documents state. Those counts were dropped as part of a plea deal.

On Jan. 14, 2020 — exactly one year before his arrest on Thursday — he pleaded guilty to sexual battery, a class A misdemeanor, court records state. In that case, Reyling was convicted of intentionally touching a woman's buttocks at the Salt Palace.
