POSEY CO., Ind. (WFIE) - Two men from Mt. Vernon are facing a child pornography charge.

Officials say 34-year-old Corey Hobbs and 39-year-old Branden Wagner were arrested.

Hobbs and Wagner have each posted bail of $1,500 and have been released pending trial.

Their initial hearings are set for Nov. 30 at 1:30 p.m.

If convicted, they face 6 months to 2 ½ years in prison.
