LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – A Lawrence County man was arrested on Thursday and is accused of being in possession of child pornography.

Thursday morning, Indiana State Police detectives and the ISP Internet Crimes Against Children Unit served an arrest warrant on 33-year-old Joshua S. Carter, of Mitchell, Indiana.

In March, detectives received information from the cyber tip line of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that Carter was using his personal e-mail account to download and view child pornography.

Police say during the investigation, Carter was found to have downloaded and viewed nearly 100 images of prepubescent children engaged in various sex acts.

Carter has been preliminarily charged with one count of possession of child pornography, a Class D felony.
