A White Lake man is in federal custody on charges of production, distribution and possession of child pornography.
Those charges follow an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Homeland Security.
Officers with the White Lake Police Department in Oakland County arrested John Millmine, 34, on Nov. 11 near his home on state charges of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. Millmine has remained in custody since his arrest and made an initial federal court appearance on Friday afternoon.
According to court documents filed in the case, special agents with Homeland Security executed a federal search warrant at Millmine's home after being informed by authorities in Ireland that Millmine, under an online alias, had allegedly shared images and videos of himself and a toddler engaging in sexual activity.
During the search, agents said they seized a smartphone they say belonged to Millmine, which after a forensics examination revealed several videos and images of child pornography.
According to the criminal complaint, authorities said two of Millmine's victims are from the Birch Run area.
If convicted, Millmine faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in prison.
