LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A federal judge has denied a motion to throw out evidence against a Fort Myers man accused of making child pornography.

According to Fort Myers Police, a tenant in Brian Harling's condo found multiple USB drives hidden in a door jam, which contained hundreds of images of child pornography.

Harling's lawyers asked a judge to throw those USB drives out as evidence, saying police didn't have a proper warrant.
