A Greece man is facing a charge involving child pornography.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says that, according to court paperwork, Terrance Junot III engaged in a series of sexually explicit online communications with a 13-year-old child. During those communications, the paperwork says Junot persuaded the child to produce sexually explicit photos of themselves and send them to him online.

The office says Junot also sent sexually explicit photos of himself to the child. According to the office, the child's mother contacted law enforcement after finding the material on the child's phone. The office says the mother recognized Junot as someone known to the family.

Junot is being detained until a detention hearing that is scheduled for Monday afternoon.
