Authorities have charged a California deputy attorney general in San Diego federal court with possession of child pornography. 

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Raymond Joseph Liddy was arrested at his Coronado home in the San Diego area earlier this week after Liddy's internet provider sent a cybercrimes tip to the FBI about an uploaded photo that appeared to be child pornography. Records show that at least ten images were uploaded from his computer, including one that showed a nude prepubescent child. 

Local and federal authorities traced the internet activity back to Liddy's home in Coronado. A subsequent search turned up more photos on a computer and thumbdrive that allegedly showed minors engaged in sex. 

The California attorney general's office says they are aware of the matter, and that the deputy attorney general had been put on administrative leave. 

The 53-year-old Liddy pleaded 'not guilty' and was released on $100,000 bond. He's expected to be held on house arrest with a GPS monitor until his court date in August. 

Liddy's father, G. Gordon Liddy, was convicted for his part in the infamous Watergate burglaries that brought down the Nixon presidency.
