LOUISVILLE, Ky -- A Casey County man has been arrested on charges related to child pornography.

Police said Franklin Clark, 30, is facing 14 counts of distribution of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor.

Police said in a news release that the arrest was the result of an ongoing undercover Internet Crimes Against Children investigation by the Kentucky State Police Electronic Crime Branch. Detectives began investigating in February after they discovered a suspect sharing images of child sexual exploitation online. During the course of the investigation, it was determined that state police detectives had received child pornography from the suspect. The majority of the images depicted the sexual abuse of children who were less than 16 years of age, according to police.

The arrest marks the second time in less than a year that Clark has been charged with charges related to child pornography.  On August 1, 2012, Clark was charged with two counts of distribution of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor and 20 counts of possession of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor.
