January 2, 2015

A former Bryant firefighter is facing charges for allegedly viewing illegal media depicting children on a computer at one of the fire stations.

Paul Ostrem, 49, of Bismark was charged this week with 35 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing sexually explicit materials involving a child.

In July of 2014, Assistant Fire Chief Brandon Futch reported to Fire Chief J.P. Jordan that inappropriate material was located on a computer at one of the fire stations.

Ostrem allegedly admitted later to knowing about the material, according to court documents.
