A Big Spring man could end up in federal prison for the rest of his life if he's convicted on child pornography charges.

74-year-old Harvey James Pelland is charged with two counts of possession of child pornography and five counts of receiving images of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

He was indicted by a federal grand jury in Lubbock.

Investigators say he got the pornography on the Internet.

We're told Pelland is in state custody on an unrelated charge.
