Denham Springs man accused in child pornography case

A 25-year-old Denham Springs man was arrested Wednesday on 50 counts of possessing and six counts of distributing pornography involving juveniles, authorities said Thursday.

The Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office also booked Brandon L. Hunt, 13825 Valley Creek Road, on possession of marijuana, drug paraphernalia and a firearm with a controlled dangerous substance, state Attorney General’s Office spokeswoman Laura Gerdes Colligan said.

Hunt was booked Wednesday into the Livingston Parish Detention Center where he remains in lieu of $5,651,000 bail, according to booking information available online.

Agents found the child pornography, drugs and weapon during a search of Hunt’s residence following a joint investigation by the state Attorney General’s High Technology Crime Unit, Sheriff’s Office and Department of Homeland Security Investigations.
