CHICAGO (AP) – A former Illinois state representative already under home confinement faces additional child pornography charges under a federal grand jury’s indictment, federal officials announced Friday.

Keith Farnham, 66, was charged in a criminal complaint last month with one count of possession of child pornography. A federal grand jury returned a four-count indictment on Thursday, and the Elgin man was charged with one count each of possessing child pornography involving a minor under age 12, one count of receiving child pornography and two counts of transporting child pornography.
