(WBIR) A former Knox County Criminal Court Clerk staffer has been arrested after an investigation found hundreds of child pornography images on computers at his home.

Investigators with KPD's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force arrested Joshua Ryan Fettig at his Knoxville home on Wednesday morning.

KPD said the 20-year-old was arrested on three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and ten counts of aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.

10News first reported Fettig's termination back in January, but chose not to report his name at the time because he had yet to be charged.

Authorities said its investigation began in December 2013 after receiving multiple reports from the National Center for Missing and Exploited children that someone was trying to send child pornography via email.

Investigators searched Fettig's home back in January and confiscated computers. KPD said it found 356 images of child pornography on those computers.

Fettig is being held on a $125,000 bond at the Knox County Detention Facility.
