Former Elberfeld Postmaster Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography Charges

Federal officials say the former postmaster of the Elberfeld Post Office pleaded guilty Tuesday in US District Court to charges of Possession and Receiving Child Pornography.

60-year-old Floyd Thompson faces up to 20-years in prison when he’s sentenced on August 10th.

The investigation began in June 2013 when the FBI traced a computer sharing sexually explicit images of children to Thompson’s Evansville home.

Federal agents interviewed Thompson and took his computer equipment into custody.

A preliminary forensic examination of the computers allegedly revealed thousands of images and videos of child pornography depicting young girls between the ages of 3 and 12 years old.
