WARRICK CO., IN (WFIE) -

US Attorney Joseph Hogsett announces former Elberfeld postmaster Floyd Thompson has pleaded guilty to child porn charges.

Hogsett says Thompson pleaded guilty to possession and receiving child porn.

According to Hogsett, the FBI found thousands of pictures and videos of child porn depicting girls ages 3-12 years old on Thompson's computer.

Thompson faces up to 20 years in prison.

Hogsett says there is no direct connection between Thompson's work as a postmaster and his possession of child porn.

Hogsett says they are working to prevent those who are trafficking child pornography from crossing a dangerous line into producing.

He says the currency among child pornography users is more images.

Hogsett says the investigation is ongoing and no local children were victimized in this case.
