ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (WAVY) — An Elizabeth City man is facing nearly a dozen charges of child pornography after he was indicted earlier this month.

The North Carolina Department of Justice said 57-year-old Alan Sigfred Andersen was indicted Jan. 16 on 10 counts of receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.
