GRANGER, Ind. -- A U.S. military academy cadet from Granger was indicted by a federal grand jury last week on charges that he possessed and distributed child pornography.

Ricky Hester, 23, could get up to 20 years in prison on each count if found guilty.

Hester was a member of the West Point class of 2014, but was placed on administrative leave following his arrest last year.

He remains on leave and is not at the academy.

It's alleged that he possessed and distributed images and videos containing child pornography.
