A Granby man has been charged by federal prosecutors on child exploitation offenses.
The U.S. Attorney's office said that 35-year-old Jonathan Monson of Granby was arrested Thursday on charges including distribution and receipt of child pornography, sexual exploitation of a minor, and possession of child pornography.
"Monson is alleged to have used a child to produce child pornography, distributed child pornography, received child pornography, and possessed child pornography from February 2018 to March 8, 2018," the U.S. Attorney's office explained in a statement.
Monson was held in custody following an appearance Friday in federal court in Springfield. Another court hearing is scheduled for March 22.
