Ellsworth AFB man indicted on child porn charges

(AP) - A man living at the Ellsworth Air Force Base has been indicted on child pornography charges.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says a federal jury has indicted 22-year-old Colby Haggerty on receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography charges.

Haggerty has pleaded not guilty.

It is unclear whether Haggerty is part of the U.S. Air Force. Officials at the base did not immediately return a call seeking comment Sunday.

Authorities allege Haggerty knowingly received and possessed electronic files containing child pornography images between August 2009 and 2014 while at the base.

Haggerty is in custody and a trial date has not been set.

The charges carry a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
