CHICO, Calif. (KTXL) — A Chico man is scheduled to be arraigned Monday afternoon for multiple charges including possession of child pornography.

A felony charge of possession of child pornography was added to Kennedy’s charges. 

Kennedy is scheduled to be arraigned at the Butte County Superior Court at 3 p.m. Monday.

The sheriff’s office is asking anyone with additional information about their investigation to contact Detective Mary Barker at 530-538-7671.
