A Huntington man is facing child pornography charges after troopers said his coworkers discovered child pornography on a work computer.
Phillip R. Nichols, 31, of Huntington is charged with distribution and exhibiting minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.
The West Virginia State Police were notified after workers at a business said they discovered a laptop logged in under the suspect's user name with pornographic images of children, according to a criminal complaint filed at Cabell County Magistrate Court.
Troopers said they searched the suspect's home and seized several electronic devices. Troopers said the suspect told them on an audio recording that he had been occasionally downloading child pornography.
Nichols was being held at the Western Regional Jail with a bond of $20,000.
