A Cary man faces felony charges that he solicited nude pictures from teenagers online, kept close to 1,000 sexual photographs and videos of children, and sought sex from what he believed to be a 9-year-old girl and an 11-year-old girl, according to arrest warrants.

Christopher Paul Temple, 30, was arrested Tuesday afternoon by the Cary Police Department.

A Cary Police Department detective posed online as an adult with two young female children, and Temple tried to arrange oral sex and other sexual acts between himself and the supposed children between Aug. 14 and Nov. 1, an arrest warrant states.

Property records show Temple purchased a home at 8735 Macedonia Lake Drive in June. He was married in September, according to an online wedding registry. He is an “auto adjuster” with Geico, according to an arrest warrant.

Arrest warrants also allege that Temple contacted girls between the ages of 13 and 16 in Hope Mills, Lincoln County, and Nebraska, “inducing and asking” that they send nude photos of themselves via Internet.

He also faces a dozen felony charges of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, stemming from police accusations that he kept hundreds of photos and videos on a computer, according to arrest warrants.

Temple does not have a criminal record. He was held Tuesday evening at the Wake County Detention Center, his bail set at $2 million.
