Berwick man faces child porn charges

PORTLAND (AP) — A Berwick man facing federal child pornography charges has been released on bail.

Peter Anderson was taken into custody of the U.S. Marshals Service on Wednesday after a warrant charging him with possession of child pornography was issued last week, according to court records.

Anderson appeared in court on Wednesday and was allowed to go free on a $50,000 unsecured bond while his case is pending.

Records indicate that his arrest was the result of a search warrant executed at his home in April.

He allegedly had several hundred videos and images of child pornography that he had downloaded from the Internet.

If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in federal prison and a fine of as much as $250,000.
