TIPPAH COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - A Tippah County man accused of sending and receiving child porn through a computer connected to wi-fi at a public library and the county courthouse is now in the custody of the U.S. Marshals.

A federal complaint says Jeffrey DeWayne Hopkins admitted to sending and receiving child porn for nearly a decade and had more than five gigabytes of images on his computer.
