An international hunt for child pornography has led to federal charges against an Albert Lea man. 33-year-old Jesse Jeff Stewart is charged with receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography. He is accused of having nearly 6,000 images. Federal police in Germany had been investigating a computer network that featured child pornography and found that multiple Internet addresses in the United States had downloaded the pornographic images.
