After an eight month investigation, a LaFollette man is now facing dozens of charges relating to sex crimes against children.
Lonnie Ellison, 52, was indicted on 82 counts, including charges of rape of a child, sexual battery and sexual exploitation of a minor.
Authorities arrested him Friday morning at his home without incident.
LaFollette Police say they started investigating the case last November after they recovered a large quantity of child pornography from a storage unit.
Authorities served a search warrant at Ellison's home on North Cumberland Avenue in April, which turned up more evidence.
Ellison is being held on a $150-thousand dollar bond.
