Florida police sergeant charged with child porn possession

LIVE OAK, Fla. (AP) — A Florida police sergeant has been formally charged with possessing child pornography.

The U.S. Attorney's Office in Jacksonville reported Tuesday that a grand jury returned an indictment against 35-year-old Kyle Kirby.

A criminal complaint says FBI agents searched Kirby's home last month, but didn't find anything. Live Oak Police said they searched Kirby's patrol car that same day and found 87 thumbnail images of child pornography on a computer inside his patrol car.

Kirby was arrested without incident last month at the Live Oak Police Department. He faces up to 20 years in federal prison. His trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 4.

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice.
