KINGMAN - The Mohave County Grand Jury indicted a Baltimore man who was arrested on child sex charges last month in Kingman.

Joshua Ryan Richison, 27, is being held on a $500,000 bond. The grand jury indicted him on six counts of sexual exploitation of a minor; the same charges Kingman Police detectives arrested him for following a brief investigation.

A forensic examination of Richison's cell phone reportedly revealed half a dozen such images.
