Attorney General Jack Conway today announced the indictment of 50-year-old Ronald Craig Hornback of Shelbyville, Ky. for possession of child pornography. A Shelby County grand jury indicted Hornback on April 21, 2010 on four counts of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.

Investigators from General Conway's Cybercrimes Unit, with assistance from Kentucky State Police, arrested Hornback on February 26, 2010 after executing a search warrant several days earlier at Hornback's home. His arrest and indictment are the result of a nearly five- month investigation by the Cybercrimes Unit, a member of the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Hornback remains on monitored house arrest and has been ordered to have no contact with minors under the age of 16. His bond has been reduced to $10,000 full cash. The office of Shelby County Commonwealth's Attorney Laura Donnell is handling the prosecution of this case.

A charge is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
