What to do if I had pics of young girls in seductive clothing and positions on my PC at work and now they want to arrest me?

There weren’t any actual sex acts in these pics but There were “cartoon” drawings of actual sex acts with children. I only looked at them. I didn’t share them or actually go into the websites. They want to arrest me. I need to turn myself in for this. What can I expect to happen. First offense. How much will bond be? Is this a felony?

You need to consult with a criminal law attorney ASAP. Do not turn yourself in or even speak with the police until you do. Whether or not it will be charged as a felony isn't clear. Again, however, do not talk to the police, even if they come to your house. If you are arrested first, then tell them that you want to speak to legal counsel...then say nothing else until our lawyer arrives.
