A Warrick Co. man has been arrested on federal child pornography charges.

Joshua Walker was arrested at the conclusion of an on-line Internet investigation that was launched by the FBI in mid-April.

He allegedly possessed or accessed books, magazines, periodicals, films, video tapes, and other matter which contained visual depictions of child pornography.

During the FBI raid of his home, authorities say he admitted to using file sharing software on numerous occasions to search for and download images and videos of underage girls.

He also admitted to them that he has had a problem since he was 18, and knew he needed help, but didn't know how to get it. 

During the investigation Walker agreed to take a polygraph test, during which he admitted again to downloading child pornography, and said he had also had two "contact offenses" with underage girls.

Walker is being held at the Henderson Co. Jail and Detention Center.
