A 31-year-old man faces a Kenton County judge Friday morning on 20 counts of possessing child pornography.

Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway's Cybercrimes Unit arrested Richard Ray Washington Thursday after authorities searched his home.

Authorities, who began investigating him in March, were looking for computers and other equipment used to distribute images and videos of exploited children.

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

The cybercrimes unit has launched more than 450 child pornography investigations and seized nearly 700,000 child pornographic images and videos from the Internet in the last 8 years. 

They also are a member of the U.S. Dept. of Justice's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
