Roger Hinson of Romulus was arrested Friday after investigators executed a search warrant and found a slew of child pornographic material in his home.
Hinson was charged with possession, receipt and distribution of child pornography.
Investigators say they traced an IP address used to share files back to Hinson's computer.
It was later revealed that Hinson is a part-time caregiver for a 14-year-old girl.
A hearing is scheduled for December 5.
