    Anderson would offer them money to be part of a clinical study and then secretly videotape the young women while giving them invasive exams, according to police. They said he also had medical equipment.

    This allegedly happened at Anderson's summer home in Salisbury. Police also seized child pornography.

    Anderson was arrested in Newtown in November after police said his wife discovered child porn on his computer. Authorities in Connecticut then notified police in Salisbury.

    Salisbury Police seized hard drives, computers and pornographic images.

    He was charged with unlawful recording of a nude or partially nude person and possession of child porn. He is being held on $500,000 bond.

    Police said the scam might have been going on for years with victims in a number of states.
