PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. – A civilian contractor who was working as a prisoner transporter at the Putnam County Jail has been indicted on three federal child pornography charges, according to documents obtained by News4JAX.

News4JAX first reported on the arrest of Brandon Smolinski, 36, in August, when he was accused of downloading child porn inside the jail.

Records show he has a first appearance in court Thursday and an arraignment, where he pleaded not guilty to all three charges.

A detention hearing was set for Dec. 16. Until then, he remains in the custody of the U.S. Marshals.
