Robert Dale Schrader was charged in federal court with one count of producing child pornography, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

The investigation into Schrader began in January when he emailed sexually explicit images of an infant to an undercover officer based in England, according to the release.

Data embedded in those images led authorities to Schrader’s Littlerock home.

In a raid on his home, authorities found the infant as well hundreds of child pornography images and videos depicting the baby, the release stated.

Schrader was facing a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in federal prison.

A sentencing hearing was set for August 18.
