State Department of Health officials have suspended the license of a Pierce County certified nursing assistant and emergency medical technician due to allegations of first-degree viewing of depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit content.

Jonathan Taylor Younglove has been charged in Thurston County Superior Court with two counts of the class B felony.

Younglove cannot practice in Washington until the charges are resolved. He has 20 days to respond to the charges and request a hearing.

Younglove was employed as an EMT by Olympic Ambulance in Lacey at the time of the allegations.

Through an extensive law enforcement investigation into posts made to Tumblr, it was determined that Younglove was responsible for viewing, uploading and saving the material to his account. During an interview with law enforcement, he allegedly admitted to viewing several images and videos containing sexually explicit acts that he knew to involve young children, according to Department of Health records.

He told investigators he’s been addicted to pornography since the age of 9.
