JACKSON, Tenn. - Federal prosecutors said a professional photographer from Perry County has been charged with possessing child pornography.

The U.S. attorney's office for West Tennessee said Wednesday that Robert Gregory Dempsey, also known as Jesse Rockwell, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Jackson on charges of possession and interstate transportation of child pornography.

Prosecutors said Dempsey owned Rockwell Photography. Prosecutors said he used social media and the Internet to promote his business throughout western and central Tennessee, including Nashville and the Perry County area.

The Perry County Sheriff's Office said they are also looking into the possibility that there may be additional victims. Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff's office at (931) 589-8803 or Special Agent Randy Pope of the Jackson TN Field Office of the FBI at (731) 668-9578

If convicted, Dempsey could face up to 20 years in federal prison. Online federal court records do not show when he has a court date or if he has a lawyer.
