A man who received treatment at a facility for youth with pornography addictions has been charged with reportedly having child pornography on his phone.

Officers arrested Spencer Joe Stubb, 20, last week after his cellphone was mistakenly left inside the Youth Health Associates medical clinic in Orem on Dec. 13.

The witness who found the phone said the device had a child pornography search request in the browser search history, according to a probable cause statement.

After obtaining a search warrant, investigators reportedly found “a vast history of adult-oriented pornography” and past Google searches for child pornography on the phone.

Stubb was charged on Wednesday with one count of sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony.

In interviews with police, Stubb reportedly said he was browsing through news on celebrities when he clicked on a link for child pornography, the probable cause report stated. Court documents state Stubb said the link showed nude young girls about 10 years old.

Stubb is a patient receiving treatment at the clinic “stemming from a juvenile rape conviction” that happened in Montana when he was 14 years old, amended court documents stated.

The Youth Health Associate is a residential treatment clinic and specializes in “treatment for juvenile sex offenders, pornography addiction, sexual reactivity, and other anti-social behavior issues,” according to the website.

Court records state officers seized other electronic devices belonging to Stubb during the investigation. He is being held at the Utah County Jail on $10,000 bail.
