Storm also faces three counts of misdemeanor corruption of minors. He was arraigned Tuesday before District Judge Richard T. Thomas. A preliminary hearing is scheduled April 12 before Thomas. 

State police said Storm exchanged and solicited nudes and sexually graphic videos with two 12-year-old girls and a 15-year-old girl for months last year.

The parents of the girls reported what happened to police, according to charging documents. Investigators found hundreds of photographs and at least a dozen videos of such exchanges.

When police questioned Storm in December and asked how many underage girls he had solicited for nude images, documents show, Storm said "too many" and that "I know I was wrong for doing it." 

One of the girls told police that she sent Storm nudes "to get him to 'shut up."'
