   A popular High Ridge doctor is facing child sex assault and pornography charges.  
   Police initially investigated Dr. Craig Pope after child pornography was traced to his computers.  St. Louis County Police Detective Adam Kavanaugh is the investigator on the case.  He spoke with Fox 2 news about the investigation.  "We knew that child pornography was being distributed from Dr. Pope's medical practice, and from his home as well," he said.   
   During questioning, police say they discovered child sexual abuse against four female family members that dates back to 1986.  The victims ranged in age from 2-16. Police say there had been an investigation in 2006, but no charges because family members were reluctant to testify.  
   St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCullough says Dr. Pope is facing 16 charges so far, but that could change if more victims come forward.  "Considering the allegations in this case and the evidence in this case, I'd be shocked if there weren't additional victims out there," McCullough said.
   Dr. Pope treated many children and teens at the Dillon Plaza Family Medicine Group in High Ridge.  Anyone who may be a victim is urged to call St. Louis County Police at (314) 889-2341.  
   Pope is currently jailed on a one-million dollar bond.
