Neiheisel faces a minimum mandatory penalty of from five to 40 years in federal prison and a potential life term of supervised release.

Investigators learned of his actions while investigating an online forum that advertised and distributed child pornography.

Riley, who is being held without bond, will make an appearance in federal court at 1:30 p.m. today for a scheduled preliminary examination and detention hearing, court records show.

Department of Homeland Security, Immigration and Customs Enforcement Public Affairs Spokeswoman Nine Pruneda confirmed agents arrested Riley and that he is from South Padre Island.

The host computer was later traced to Neiheisel's home.

The indictment states that on or about January 27 Stephen transported a USB with a camera inside that contained images and videos of children involved in "sexually explicit conduct".

A local man pleaded guilty to child porn charges on Monday.

A search warrant also was served in the 8000 block of Autumn Leaf Drive in Rancho Cucamonga in connection with the investigation, police said.

This case was investigated by the Columbia County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Attorney General Pam Bondi's Office plans to prosecute.
