BATON ROUGE - The Attorney General's Office said joint investigations led by their High Tech Crime Unit led to two arrests for child pornography this week.

Investigators arrested Brandon Hunt, 25, of Denham Springs Wednesday. He faces 50 counts of possessing and six counts of distributing child porn.

Authorities searched Hunt's home and said they also also found evidence of drug and firearm-related crimes. The Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office charged Hunt with marijuana possession, and possessing drugs and guns at the same time.

In a second case, investigators also arrested Christopher Marler, 27, of Sulphur Tuesday. Authorities said Marler had exchanged child porn videos with undercover agents online, and was booked into the Calcasieu Parish Jail on five counts of distributing and four counts of possessing child porn.

If convicted as charged, the men face up to 20 years in prison on each count of child pornography.
