Upson County grand jurors indicted 22 people Tuesday including a man charged with computer pornography and exploitation - Upson County's first such indictment.
Dennis Russell Hartley, 595 Firetower Road, was indicted on five counts of computer pornography and exploitation and authorities say his computer contained five explicit sexual images of children under age 16.
Chris Hosey, an investigator with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Tuesday would not say how authorities came to discover the images on Hartley's computer, but the indictment alleges the man "reproduced" the images between March and September of last year.
Photos found on Hartley's computer include children involved in abuse.
