— Federal agents arrested a state corrections officer Tuesday on child pornography charges, authorities said.

James Kelly Hubbard, 33, was indicted last week on 15 counts of receiving child pornography between February 2006 and last September and one count of possessing child pornography. Investigators found sexually explicit images and videos of young girls on a computer, according to the indictment.

Hubbard has been a correctional officer at Caledonia Correctional Institution in Halifax County since 2000.

    The requirements to be a prison guard are WAY lower than those to be a REAL law enforcement officer. The two groups can't be compared apples to apples in training or pay.

    I've also heard that when DOC finds wrongdoing among it's own staff at the prisons, you never hear about it.

    well the sound like a law enforcement agency to me. If there is no video or the evidence can be swept under the carpet nothing will happen to the officers.

    Well, another fine outstanding LEO. And the hits just keep on coming! This is a sick individual that needs to be in the general population once he is convicted!
