ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany man has been indicted on 14 counts of sexual exploitation of children, for possession of child pornography.

Officials said 20-year-old Matthew Woodard is charged with having 14 pictures of juvenile boys engaging in sexual acts on his cell phone.

He was tracked by federal and state investigators that keep watch on Internet and social media sites that share child pornography.

"We don't identify anybody that is actually a victim in this circumstance," said Dougherty District Attorney Greg Edwards. "The evidence is the actual material, the photograph, the video that is part of what was recorded from this individual, in his possession as alleged."

Prosecutors say the Georgia Task Force for Internet Crimes against Children took part in this investigation.
