A Henrietta man accused of distributing child pornography was booked into Clay County jail Monday afternoon.

Authorities got another tip in April claiming Nelson received a pornographic image of a young boy through Facebook.

Lemons said, Nelson later admitted to not only possessing the child pornography but to distributing it as well.

He is charged with possession and promotion of child pornography.

His bonds are set at a total of $225,000.

Lemons said more charges are pending.
