HARRISBURG -- A 56-year-old man who's a lifetime Megan's Law registrant was arrested Friday and charged with more than two dozen counts relating to child pornography.

According to the criminal complaint, agents conducting an online investigation found numerous files containing explicit images of minors engaged in sexually graphic acts and poses.

Agents determined that the files were being downloaded and disseminated from a computer allegedly belonging to William Hopkins, 304 Market St., Millersburg.

During a search of Hopkins' Millersburg apartment, forensic examiners located suspected child pornography on a desktop computer. Hopkins was arrested on Jan. 10 and charged with 13 counts of distribution of child pornography, 13 counts of possession of child pornography and one count of criminal use of a communication facility.

He was preliminarily arraigned and held in the Dauphin County Prison in lieu of $150,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Jan. 21.
