DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) A 65-year-old Davenport man faces federal child pornography charges.

The Quad-City Times reports that William Phares is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Davenport.

Court records show that police raided Phares' apartment last year and seized a laptop computer.

Phares is accused of viewing pornography involving children as young as infants and involving children engaging in bondage.

Police say Phares told officers he had downloaded hundreds of child pornographic videos, but deleted them after he saw what they were. Phares told authorities he is not sexually attracted to children.

If convicted of possession of child pornography, Phares could be sentenced to up to 20 years in prison.
