SLIDELL - Authorities and members of the Attorney General's Office accused a Slidell man of having child porn after a joint investigation.

Attorney General Buddy Caldwell said investigators arrested Jarrett Wayne Tillman, 19, on 22 counts of child pornography recently.

Caldwell said work by the AG's Cyber Crime Unit led agents to search Tillman's home in Slidell. During the Search authorities said they found numerous pornographic images of children between the ages of 6 and 14 engaged in sexual acts or posed in a sexual manner.

"We will continue to expand our efforts and stay current with the ever changing technology used by those who attempt to exploit innocent children online," Caldwell said in a press release.

Agents booked Tillman into the Slidell City Jail. If convicted as charged he faces up to 20 years in prison for each count. The investigation involved members of the Cyber Crime Unit, Homeland Security Investigations, St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office and the Slidell Police Department.
