The Bristol Herald Courier is reporting that a man accused of molesting a 10-year-old child at an Abingdon apartment complex two years ago now faces additional charges of possession of child pornography.

Anthony Joseph Getman, 29, who now lives in Marion, Va., was indicted April 28 on 50 counts of possession of child pornography. He was arrested on the charges May 1, after police seized the computer in his home.

Getman already faced trial on one count each of sodomy and aggravated sexual battery in connection with the molestation accusations.

Getman, called Tony, is accused of inappropriately touching a young neighbor on more than one occasion and buying gifts for the child so he wouldn’t tell.

After being arrested on the molestation charges in 2007, Getman posted a $50,000 bond and was released on house arrest.
