A local man already convicted in an earlier child porn case was named in a 12-count indictment Wednesday that charges possession of child pornography.

Court records show Shannon Dewitt Modisette, 54, was arrested at his Speegleville home on July 19, where after serving a search warrant, McLennan County Sheriff’s deputies seized more than 3,000 images of underage children engaging in sexual activity.

Modisette already was serving a six-year probation sentence on a 2015 conviction for possession of child porn, but he had been arrested and jailed on a probation violation warrant, sheriff’s records show.

Deputies also said Modisette had been sharing the images online.

Modisette remained in custody in the county jail Thursday in lieu of bonds totaling $30,000 and without bond on the revocation charge, jail records show.
