INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Federal prosecutors in Indianapolis say a former FBI agent has been arrested on child pornography charges.

The U.S. attorney's office says 54-year-old Donald Sachtleben being held pending a detention hearing Thursday. A criminal complaint unsealed Monday charges Sachtleben with possessing and distributing child pornography.

Investigators allegedly found about 30 images and video files on the Carmel man's computer. If convicted, Sachtleben could face up to 20 years in prison for the distribution charge, and 10 years for the possession charge.

His attorney, Kathleen Sweeney, says Sachtleben had a distinguished career and there never has any suggestion of inappropriate behavior. She said he was involved in the Oklahoma City bombing investigation and the Unabomber investigation.

He also is a visiting professor at Oklahoma State University.
