Twenty-year-old Anthony Zane Austin of Childress has been indicted on one count of receiving child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s office, the indictment alleges that between August 21st, 2011 and February 10th, 2012, Austin received a depiction of child pornography via the internet, and that he reportedly possessed a thumb drive that contained at least one image of child pornography in April of 2012.
