NASHVILLE (WSMV) - Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Jackson County Sheriff's Department agents have indicted a Granville man accused of possessing child pornography.

TBI investigators said they've received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to investigate 62-year-old Patrick Timothy Sheehan in July 2017. During the course of the investigation, they executed a search warrant and found images consistent with child pornography on Sheehan's computer.

A Jackson County grand jury returned indictments on Monday, Nov. 5 charging Sheehan with 14 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. On Thursday, authorities arrested Sheehan and booked him into the Jackson County Jail on $15,000 bond.
