Pearl City man charged with producing child porn

HONOLULU (AP) - FBI agents have arrested an Oahu man on charges he produced and held child pornography in his possession.

Ray Yokoyama of Pearl City will appear in federal court for a detention hearing on Thursday. The 52-year-old has been in federal custody since his arrest on Friday.

Yokoyama faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted of producing child pornography and up to 20 years if convicted of possessing child pornography.

His attorney, Jessica Turk, declined to comment.

An affidavit says agents began investigating Yokoyama after an undercover officer in Dallas downloaded child pornography shared by a computer in Hawaii. Agents traced the computer's Internet Protocol address to Yokoyama's home.

A search of the home turned up a disk with pornographic images of a young boy.
