A 19-year-old Kewaunee man has been indicted on child pornography charges, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office of Eastern District of Wisconsin.

The news release says a federal grand jury returned an indictment against Kyle D. Sanderson on Tuesday. According to the indictment, Sanderson distributed and possessed images of child pornography including sexually explicit images of children and toddlers.

Sanderson faces two counts of distribution of child pornography, the news release states. If convicted, he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years and up to 20 years of incarceration in federal prison.

The news release states this case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative led by the U.S. Department of Justice.
