A Brownfield man is facing federal charges for child pornography. Eric William Hester is free on bond, on home detention with electronic monitoring.
Earlier this month, U.S. immigration and customs agents searched his home on Timmons road in Brownfield. They obtained records indicating Hester used a credit card to access web sites containing child pornography.
Court papers state, when Hester was questioned he confessed to having child porn. They say Hester searched and downloaded child pornography, and he copied those images to disk, but later destroyed them for fear of getting caught.
