FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) -- Attorney General Jack Conway and his Cybercrimes Unit today announced the arrest of a Johnson County man on multiple counts of possessing child pornography.

Kevin King, 22, was arrested Wednesday afternoon by the Johnson County Sheriff's Department following an indictment obtained by General Conway's Cybercrimes investigators.

The indictment is the result of an investigation that began in December 2012.

Investigators with the Cybercrimes Unit, along with deputies from the Johnson County Sheriff's Department, executed a search warrant at King's home.

A forensic exam on computers taken from the home discovered more than 3,000 images depicting the sexual exploitation of children.

King is charged with four counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor, a Class D felony.

Each count is punishable by one to five years in prison.

A charge is merely an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
