A 41-year-old Lake Charles man has been charged with pornography involving juveniles, state police said.

Sgt. James Anderson said Charles Brent Compton, 583 La. 397, was arrested Wednesday afternoon.

“A search of Compton’s residence resulted in the seizure of a computer and other data devices for examination,” Anderson said Thursday in a news release. “A subsequent forensic analysis revealed that child pornography was present on the computer.”

Bond was set at $100,000.

“If convicted, Compton faces up to a $50,000 fine and from 5 to 25 years in prison without benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence,” Anderson said.
