SALT LAKE CITY — A Salt Lake City man has been sentenced to jail after he admitted to having 90 videos of child pornography on his phone in 2018.

James Tyrel Nelson, 46, of Salt Lake City, was charged Tuesday in 3rd District Court with three counts of rape, four counts of forcible sodomy, and object rape, all first-degree felonies. He was also charged with two counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony.

Gustavo Briseno, 55, was sentenced Monday in 3rd District Court to serve 90 days in the Salt Lake County jail, according to court documents. He pleaded guilty in July to two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony.

Seven other counts of sexual exploitation of a minor were dismissed in the case as part of Brisenos plea agreement, court documents show.

Investigators say they are worried about the potential for more victims, and encourage anyone who may have had unwanted or illegal contact with Nelson to call 801-799-3000 or their local police department.

Briseno also received a prison sentence of one to 15 years in Utah State Prison on each felony count, but those sentences were suspended, according to the sentencing order. He was ordered to spend 48 months on probation and undergo assessment, including a psychosexual evaluation, to determine appropriate counseling and treatment, the order states.

Members of the Utah Internet Crimes Against Children task force were notified that a Google user may have uploaded child pornography in October 2017, according to charging documents.

Following that notification, Briseno voluntarily came to the Utah Attorney Generals office in April 2018 and was interviewed by agents, charges state. He admitted to investigators that “there were approximately 90 videos of child pornography on his phone,” according to charges.

Nelson, who goes by the stage name Tye Nelson, studied film production at the University of Utah and has appeared in several movies, according to his bio and IMDb page.

He also told investigators that he had had “a problem with child pornography for some time” and that he had been looking at child pornography as recently as four weeks before agents interviewed him, charges state.

A $500,000 warrant was issued Tuesday for his arrest. Salt Lake police say he was arrested by noon on Wednesday and booked in the Salt Lake County Jail.
