JENSEN BEACH, Fla., Sept. 21 (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a man who blamed 10 counts of possession of child pornography on his cat is facing 90 additional charges of the crime.

The Martin County Sheriff's Office said Keith Riley Griffin, 48, of Jensen Beach, Fla., was charged in early August with 10 counts of possession of child pornography and is now facing 100 counts of the offense, TCPalm.com reported Monday.

Investigators said Griffin told them after his August arrest that the offending material had been downloaded as a result of his cat walking on the computer keyboard while he was away from home.

Griffin was being held at the Martin County Jail with bail set at $2.2 million.
