Littleton man arrested on child porn charges

DENVER - A Littleton man was arraigned in federal court Tuesday on charges that he kept and shared child pornography images on his computer.

Calvin Dawdy, 51, was arrested last week after being indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography.

United States Attorney John Walsh and FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge James Yacone announced Dawdy's arrest in a news release Tuesday. Dawdy is currently free on $5,000 bond pending the outcome of his trial.

He faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine for each of the the distribution charges. He also faces an additional 10 years on the possession charge.

This case was investigated as part of Project Safe Childhood which was launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse.
