HAMMOND | A federal grand jury indicted a 30-year-old Lake Station man Wednesday on charges of production and possession of child pornography, according to court records. 

Daniel T. Eckstrom is charged with seven counts of production of child pornography, one count of distribution of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

Eckstrom was charged in federal court in May with sexual exploitation of children. According to an affidavit, he told officials he used marijuana to lure a girl into having sex with him. He also told officials he had received child pornography through the Internet for years.

According to Wednesday's indictment, from 2009 to 2013 he created hundreds of images and videos of child pornography of a girl who was as young as 8 years old. In 2012, he created about 77 pornographic images and a video of a 6-year-old girl.

Eckstrom also is accused of creating four pornographic images and three videos in 2012 of a separate girl who was about 9 years old.

He was ordered to hand over to officials his computer, cameras and electronic storage media, according to court records.
