CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

A Reinbeck man faces up to 40 years in federal prison after being charged with receiving child pornography and possessing child pornography.

The charges against 43-year-old Michael Cottrell were contained in an indictment that was unsealed last week.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Iowa says Cottrell is accused of receiving and possessing the pornography between 2012 and 2014.

If convicted, Cottrell faces between five years and 40 years in prison and a $500,000 fine.

Cottrell’s trial is set for October 26.
