Date of News Release: 09/18/2013

(La Grange, Ky.) - An Oldham County man was arrested on charges related to child pornography on Tuesday, Sept. 17 after Kentucky State Police served a search warrant at his home.

Richard Wayne Johnson, 35, is charged with two counts of distribution of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor and 12 counts of possession of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor. He was lodged in the Oldham County Jail Tuesday. He has been released on bond.
