ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - A former cadet at the New Mexico Military Institute is behind held in California to face child pornography charges back in New Mexico.

The Roswell Daily Record reported (https://bit.ly/1WFC0lr) Saturday that 20-year-old Joshua Adam Williams was arrested this week in Lakeside, California on charges of distribution of child pornography, possession of child pornography and attempted production of child pornography.

He will be transported to Las Cruces to appear in federal court.

Authorities say Williams allegedly received pornographic images last year from a 12-year-old boy in Seattle.

The boy believed he was sharing images with a female minor.

Authorities say the investigation led to Williams, who was interviewed May 15 at NMMI.

Williams admitted to obtaining and distributing pornographic videos of juvenile males.

The NMMI says it is cooperating with authorities.
