BELTON, Texas (KWTX) A Belton man who’s been in custody since June has been indicted on five counts of possession of child pornography.

The Bell County Grand Jury handed up the indictments Wednesday against Richard Jay Scott, 38.

He was arrested on June 7 after investigators from the Texas Attorney General’s Child Exploitation Unit served a search warrant at his home in Belton and seized several digital storage devices.

“Scott admitted to downloading, possession and sharing child pornography when interviewed,” the attorney general’s office said in an email.

He remains jailed in lieu of bonds totaling $375,000.
