SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - A Sulphur man is accused of child pornography possession, according to a news release from Louisiana State Police.

Authorities said in November 2012, detectives with the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations initiated an Operation Child Watch investigation that led to a search warrant for a Sulphur home.

Authorities said during the search, several computers were seized for forensic examination. No arrest was made at that time.

"During the investigation, detectives determined that sexually explicit images, including numerous video files containing child pornography, had been downloaded by 29-year-old Anthony Joseph Kinney of Sulphur," the release states.

On Wednesday, Kinney was arrested for possessing pornography involving juveniles and booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center.

Bond was set at $75,000.

Authorities said if convicted, Kinney faces up to a $50,000 fine and from five to 20 years in prison without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence.
