University of Southern Miss student indicted on child porn charges

Hattiesburg, MS -

A University of Southern Mississippi student arrested in October on suspicion of child porn has been formally charged in Hattiesburg.

A federal grand jury handed down the indictment charging 24 year old Miles McNairy with one count of possession of child pornography involved in interstate commerce.

The grand jury voted to indict McNairy for being in possession of a laptop computer that allegedly contained explicit depictions of minors.

McNairy has been in custody pending trial after FBI agents arrested him Oct. 22.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael T. Parker wrote in his detention order that McNairy posed a threat to the community, citing some 160 alleged illegal pornographic files on McNairy's computer alongside the suspect's purported admissions of previous sexual contact with minor relatives to FBI agents.
