A Howard County man has been indicted for producing child pornography.

The indictment came down earlier this week in a federal court in Lubbock against 36-year-old John Conroy.

Prosecutors say Conroy tried to get an underage girl to take part in sexually explicit activity with him, so he could video tape it back in December of last year.

Conroy was arrested earlier this month on aggravated sexual assault of a child.

If convicted on the federal charges, Conroy could face up to 30 years in prison.
