A Massachusetts man is facing child pornography charges following his arrest at his home in Randolph, federal prosecutors announced Wednesday.
Spencer Hughes, 38, was taken into custody Tuesday morning following the execution of a search warrant, according to the office of U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling.
At the home, authorities allegedly found an external hard drive that contained a folder with numerous pornographic images and videos of a 10- or 11-year-old girl, prosecutors said. Those images and videos appeared to have been taken inside of a bedroom, according to an affidavit.
