The indictment handed up Wednesday by a federal grand jury charges 48-year-old Gerrett Conover of Woolwich Township with two counts of sexually exploiting children and 10 counts of the receipt or distribution of child porn images. He’s also accused of possessing additional child porn images.

Conover was stopped at a border crossing when he tried to enter the United States from Canada in September 2012. Investigators allegedly found more than 50 child porn images on his computer, and more were found during a search of his home.

Conover served as a Boy Scout leader from 1990 to 2000. He faces more than 100 years in prison if convicted on the charges.
