DENVER -- A former administrator at a Christian school was indicted by a federal grand jury Monday on charges of possession and distribution of child pornography.

Daniel Ashby, 39, was an administrator at Community Christian School in Northglenn, but the school said he resigned on Dec. 6 of this past year -- the same day the school learned of the investigation.

According to court documents, police served a search warrant at the school and at Ashby's home in December after an undercover FBI offer discovered images of child pornography had been shared using a computer belonging to Ashby.

The search produced several photos, including one image that showed an underage girl having sex with an adult.

Ashby will attended a detention hearing in U.S. District Court Friday.

He was released to his parents home. He is restricted on where he can go and he is not allowed contact with any children except his own. He is not allowed to have a computer or even a smart phone in the home.
