BATON ROUGE - Federal and state authorities accused a Baton Rouge attorney of child porn charges Monday.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

If convicted, Mannear faces a mandatory minimum of 5 years and up to 20 years in prison, a period of supervised release following imprisonment of up to life, a fine of up to $250,000, restitution to any victims, and forfeiture of property facilitating his criminal activity.
