DENHAM SPRINGS - Authorities have set a $10 million bond for a man accused of possessing child pornography.

49-year-old Marvin Thornton was arrested Wednesday after a joint agency investigation involving the state Attorney General's office.

Officials say Thornton faces 100 counts for possession of child porn.

If convicted, he could spend up to 20 years in prison for each count.

Investigators say he was on probation for an obscenity charge at the time of his arrest.
