LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Louisville man was arrested Monday for allegedly possessing child pornography.

That's according to a news release from Attorney General Jack Conway's office.

Robert Belton, 45, was arrested at his Louisville home by Conway's Cybercrimes Unit July 21. He's now facing four counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

The Cybercrimes Unit began investigating Belton in May after receiving an undercover lead. Belton’s home was searched, and investigators seized computers believed to contain files depicting children engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Belton was being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $100,000 full cash bond.

If convicted, he could be sentenced to one to five years in prison for each charge.
