TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A Terre Haute man accused of having tens of thousands of child pornographic images faces a decade in prison.
The U.S. Attorney's office today held a press conference. 26-year-old Emery Norton, Jr. faces child exploitation charges.
Authorities in March raided Norton’s home on 17th street where agents found images on two computers.
Investigators believe Norton used a file sharing network to get the images.
"People are being harmed anytime images that exploit our children pass from one provider to the next,” said Joe Hogsett, U.S. Attorney.
Norton's arrest is part of the federal government's project safe childhood.
Last year, Hogsett's office prosecuted 52 defendants. The government has convicted all person's prosecuted as part of project safe childhood.
