The man accused of having sexual pictures of children, Richard McLaughlin, will face a judge again next week.
The Editor of the Winkler County News had his first hearing Friday morning in Federal Court.
Lawyer was appointed to defend the 61-year old.
McLaughlin was arrested at his Kermit home on Thursday afternoon, two days after the FBI served searched the newspaper offices and his home.
Investigators took a computer, along with video tapes and other forms of digital media from McLaughlin's bedroom.
Authorities tell us he had four videos of pre-teen and teenage boys performing sexual acts on a disc.
Investigators are still going through the evidence taken from the home and the paper's offices.
McLaughlin will be back in court on Wednesday afternoon for a bond hearing.
For now, he remains in federal custody.
