EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) __ A southwestern Illinois man is jailed without bond on federal charges that he took sexually explicit photos of a 3-year-old victim.

Twenty-three-year-old Cory Reibel of Swansea was indicted in East St. Louis on two charges of production of child pornography.  During his arraignment last week, a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf.

Authorities allege that twice in February, Reibel took nude photos of the toddler, displaying the child’s genitalia. Reibel initially faced state charges, but St. Clair County’s prosecutor and the region’s top federal prosecutor agreed to pursue the matter in federal court.

A message seeking comment was left Wednesday with Reibel’s federal public defender was not immediately returned. Each felony count carries a possible 30 years in prison and
$250,000 fine.
