HAMMOND | A Gary man was arrested Friday on federal charges of receiving and viewing child pornography using a web-based bulletin board, U.S. District Court records show.

Tony R. Bronson faces a felony charge in Hammond federal court of knowingly receiving visual depictions of minors engaging in sex acts, some of which showed children as young as 3 and 5 years old, according to a criminal complaint filed Thursday.

After a search of his Gary residence, Bronson admitted to having a collection of between 700,000 and 800,000 files on his computer containing child pornography, the complaint states.

Bronson told federal agents "he did not feel that what he was doing was wrong because all he was doing was sitting in his room behind his computer" when viewing the images, the complaint states.
