A Ferdinand man already incarcerated on child molestation and child seduction charges is now also being charged with possession of child pornography.
According to a news release from the Dubois County Sheriff's Office, Nathan C.

He now also faces a Level 6 felony count of possession of child pornography.
The Dubois County Sheriff's Office has been assisted by the Jasper City Police Department, Ferdinand Police Department, the Huntingburg Police Department, the Dubois County Prosecutor's Office, the Indiana Department of Family and Children Services and the Southwestern Indiana Child Advocacy Center Coalition during the course of this investigation.
