CINCINNATI -- A former Norwood city council candidate was indicted on a federal child pornography charge, according to court documents unsealed Friday.

Michael Gibson is facing charges of receipt of child pornography and transfer of obscene material to a minor under 16, according to court records.

Gibson communicated with an undercover agent who pretended to be a 13-year-old girl, officials said in court records.

Authorities seized a tablet, laptop and other items during their investigation.

Gibson had been running for a seat on the Norwood city council, but dropped out of the race after a search warrant was executed on his property.
