HAMMOND | A Crown Point man is scheduled to be sentenced in July after pleading guilty to a federal charge of possessing child pornography.

Joshua Atwood, 29, pleaded guilty to the charge recently in U.S. District Court in Hammond, according to the U.S. attorney's office.

Indiana State Police and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested Atwood on a federal warrant in February, authorities said.

While a search warrant was being served at his home, Atwood agreed to talk to a federal agent and admitted to receiving and possessing child pornography on his computer since 2004, according to a federal criminal complaint.

A computer forensics examiner found 13 child pornography images and 11 child pornography videos stored on Atwood's computer hard drive, according to the complaint.
