An eastern Iowa teenager faces up to 15-years in prison, charged with 20 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Eighteen-year old Zach Morse is now in the Muscatine County Jail after uploading sexual photos of a girl under age 18 to Facebook.

Police say the girl took off her clothes during a video chat and Morse captured screen shots. He then allegedly shared them on Facebook with another person in a private group message.

The Muscatine County prosecutor says cases involving cell phone technology are becoming more common thanks to the ease of obtaining the information.

He also says police are able to get evidence from a laptop or a cell phone within a few hours, while waiting for results from fingerprints and DNA can take months.
