A Schoharie County man is facing a federal child pornography charge, authorities said.

Edward Werner, 51, of Middleburgh, appeared in U.S. District Court in Albany recently on one count of receipt and attempted receipt of child pornography.

Magistrate Judge Christian Hummel ordered Werner held pending trial following a hearing Dec. 18.

Federal investigators zeroed in on Werner during an investigation dating back to February into an unidentified website, according to the federal court filing.

The investigation continued through the summer, after authorities shut down the site.

FBI agents interviewed Werner Dec. 15, according to the federal complaint and he admitted to accessing the website and viewing child pornography.
