A Hopkins County, Kentucky man was recently indicted on dozens of child pornography charges.

On Jan. 25, 39-year-old Ryan Hardin of Madisonville was indicted on 60 counts of different child porn charges by a Hopkins County Grand Jury.

Hardin was arrested back in December of 2021 by the Kentucky State Police. KSP said Hardin's arrest followed an undercover Internet Crimes Against Children investigation.

KSP started investigating Hardin after they say he was discovered sharing inappropriate images of children online.

Each of the 60 felony charges that Hardin was indicted on carries a sentence of 1 to 10 years in prison.

He's now scheduled to be arraigned in court on Thursday, Feb. 24 at 9:00 a.m.
