An Alhambra man is facing child pornography charges following a raid by federal agents at a residence in Livingston on Thursday. 34-year old Robert E. Godsey has been charged with receipt, possession and distribution of visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct after investigators seized 600 videos and over 1,000 images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct from his personal computer.
Godsey admitted the pornographic material was his and told investigators that he had been collecting the material for a number of years. If convicted on all counts, he faces up to 60 years in prison.
