HALE CENTER, TX (KCBD) - A Hale Center man pleaded not guilty to child pornography charges in a Lubbock federal court on Friday.

56-year-old David Trotter was arrested last month and charged with receipt of child pornography.

A criminal complaint filed by the FBI alleges Trotter used his step-granddaughter's social media accounts to ask a 13-year-old boy for sexually explicit photos.

The complaint also claims Trotter recorded the girl getting out of the shower.

Trotter entered his plea on Friday and will face trial in July.

He could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
