An Independence man faces a federal charge of allegedly using a minor to produce child pornography.

Morgan Littleton, 32, of Independence, was indicted by a federal grand jury Wednesday and charged with four counts of producing child porn last year.

The indictment alleges that Littleton used a minor girl to produce child pornography on four separate occasions from Jan. 18 to March 25, 2013.

The case was investigated by the Independence Police Department.
