GROVELAND TWP. (WWJ) - A northern Oakland County man is facing dozens of charges for "unspeakable" sex crimes involving multiple child victims. 

Michigan State Police said Thursday that Genesee County Prosecutor's Office has revised the charges against Jeremy David McCallum of Groveland Township, adding dozens of additional rape charges. 

McCallum now faces the following: 65 counts of first degree criminal sexual conduct, 18 counts of second degree criminal sexual conduct, two counts of felony firearm, one count of child abuse, two counts of aggravated child sexual abusive activity, and two counts of extortion. 

The 43-year-old was arrested last week after his son alerted authorities to alleged child porn he'd discovered on his father's tablet. Police said the boy had run away from home, and was found by state troopers.

According to Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton, McCallum was found in possession of graphic videos and images of himself abusing multiple victims.

"These are recordings of him with young, very young children, doing unspeakable things to those children," Leyton told WNEM. "Some of the victims are what we would call infants."

State Police and FBI  investigators were involved in searching computers and other items found in McCallum's home, in the 11000 block of N. Holly Road.

Leyton said investigators were able to determine the sexual assaults occurred in Grand Blanc Township, spanning several years. 

The boy who alerted police has been placed in the care of other family members.
