EL PASO  — An El Paso man faces multiple counts of possessing and disseminating child pornography as part of the state Attorney General Office’s “Operation Glass House,” a statewide initiative to apprehend people who download and trade child pornography online.

Shawn L. Schmidt, 49, was charged in Woodford County Circuit Court. Bond was set at $1 million.

The seven possession charges, Class 2 felonies, are punishable by three to seven years in prison; the seven dissemination charges are Class X felonies and carry a prison term of six to 30 years upon conviction, the AG’s office said.

State investigators were assisted by the El Paso Police Department and the Woodford County State’s Attorney’s Office.

Schmid’t arrest followed a search of a residence in the 100 block of South Commercial Street on Tuesday where alleged child pornography was discovered. Woodford County State’s Attorney Gregory Minger’s office will prosecute the case.
