MANSFIELD (CBS) – A Mansfield man was charged Tuesday in federal court with receiving child pornography.

Gerald Deneault, 45, who police say was previously convicted in Massachusetts of indecent assault and battery on a child under the age of 14, was arrested at home Tuesday morning.

Police say Deneault received child pornography from a Canadian company on a number of occasions from June 2008 through February 2011.

Based on  an investigation of the Canadian company, federal officers identified Deneault as being a recipient of child pornography.

During a search of his home, federal officers say they seized child pornography, including computers and DVDs.

If convicted, Deneault faces a minimum mandatory sentence of 15 years and up to 40 years in prison.
