Two Acadiana men were arrested this week in separate cases on counts of possessing and distributing child pornography, according to the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office.

Both men face up to 20 years in prison for each count of child porn.

State Police, sheriff’s offices in Vermilion, St. Landry and Acadia parishes, and federal homeland security agents also worked on the cases.
