A Virginia man was charged with three counts of child porn possession after an investigation of nude Twitter photos.

An Augusta County (Va.)  Sheriff’s Office investigator received a tip last week that Raphine man Darby Powers was tweeting photos of his genitalia. Investigator Michael Roane set up a Twitter account and contacted Powers.

According to local newspaper The News Leader, Roane said he found that Powers was trying to make contact with female high school students. He added that, when questioned Friday, Powers admitted to possessing child porn.

Roane claimed to have seen three “pretty disturbing videos" of girls aged 4-8, leading to the charges against Powers.

Powers is free on a $2,500 secured bond. He faces 15 years in prison if convicted.
