FRANKFORT, Ky. (WBKO) -- Attorney General Jack Conway and his Cybercrimes Unit today announced that a Lawrence County grand jury has indicted a man on charges involving child pornography.

On Jan. 10, the grand jury indicted 68-year-old Edgar N. Purdom on four counts of distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and one count of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

Purdom turned himself in at the Lawrence County Sheriff's Department Monday afternoon.

Distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor are Class D felonies.

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