NEW ORLEANS - Authorities accused a New Orleans Police officer Wednesday of possessing child porn, according to the Attorney General's Office.

Officers arrested Bradley Wax, 54, of Mandeville on 38 charges of pornography involving juveniles. He was booked into the St. Tammany Parish Jail, and faces 20 years in prison on each count if convicted.

The Attorney General's Office said an online undercover investigation led authorities to search Wax's home in January. After forensic analysis was conducted on computers and other electronic devices seized during the search, investigators determined Wax possessed child porn.

The arrest was part of a joint investigation involving the Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit, St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office and Homeland Security Investigations.
