WRANGELL, Alaska (AP) - A Wrangell doctor has been indicted on child pornography charges.

KSTK (http://is.gd/9Erwwl) reports Greg Salard was indicted Wednesday by a federal grand jury on felony counts alleging child-pornography distribution and possession.

Federal public defender Cara McNamara, who is representing Salard, declined to comment Friday.

Salard is accused of being in possession of child porn when he was arrested last week after a search warrant was served at his home. Authorities say Salard also made child pornography available through a file-sharing network.

He is in custody and scheduled for arraignment Tuesday.

Until his arrest, Salard was working as a family doctor for Alaska Island Community Services. He also had a contract with Wrangell Medical Center.

Island Community Services executive director Mark Walker says Salard is no longer practicing for either organization.
