A Williamson County man has been charged with four counts of possession of child pornography, the Texas attorney general’s office announced Friday.

The child exploitation unit of the attorney general’s office said investigators got a tip from authorities in Pennsylvania that led them to search the home of 26-year-old Joshua Carl Wulff of Leander.

There, investigators said, they found pornography on his laptop and charged Wulff with four counts of possession of child pornography.  Wulff faces up to 10 years in prison on each count, if convicted.

Authorities say investigators also took digital storage devices from Wulff’s home that will be looked at by the attorney general’s digital forensics unit.

According to a statement from the attorney general’s office, Wulff was interviewed and admitted to using social networks to seek children online.

Attorney General Ken Paxton said in the statement that adults should become aware of the risks their children face online and should be informed about online safety.

As of Friday, Wulff was being held in Williamson County Jail with bail set at a combined $60,000 for the four charges, according to jail records.
