BATON ROUGE - Authorities charged a St. Tammany Parish man with possession of child pornography, according to Attorney General Buddy Caldwell. 

Police arrested 44-year-old George Rogers of Slidell Friday in suspicion of 100 counts of possession of pornography involving juveniles under the age of 13. 

"By working with our law enforcement partners to track down and apprehend Internet predators, we are making Louisiana a safer place for our children," Attorney General Caldwell said.

According to the Attorney General's office Rogers faces up to 20 years in prison on each charge if convicted.

Rogers' arrest was part of a larger investigation into distribution of child pornography  by the Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations, the Louisiana State Police, the St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office and the Slidell Police Department.
