Feds to prosecute M.C.L.B. child porn charged officer

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty District Attorney says his office is working with Federal officials to have a high ranking Marine Officer charged with child pornography prosecuted in federal court.

48-year old Colonel Kyle Nickel was arrested August 14th and charged with 25 counts of exploitation of children.
 Later child porn distribution charges were added.  

 D-A Greg Edwards said his office is opting to have federal authorities take over the prosecution.

"We wanted to make the best used of those resources to make sure that this case is pretty comprehensive, "said Edwards.  "And all of the appropriate steps are taken and all of the issues are resolved."

Colonel Nickel, a 25-year veteran of the Marine Corps, remains in an active duty status assigned to Marine Corps Logistics Command here in Albany.  
Corps officials say he reports daily for duty.
