Ball man faces child porn charge

ALEXANDRIA (AP) — A 50-year-old Ball man is facing a charge of possession child pornography after being arrested by agents

with the Louisiana Attorney General's High Technology Crime Unit and the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office.

Louisiana Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said in a news release that Billie McCann, Jr. was booked into the Rapides Parish

Detention Center Wednesday.

Caldwell says officials found evidence of child pornography on his computer during a search of his home.

If convicted, McCann could face up to 20 years in prison.

It was unclear whether McCann has an attorney.
