The two were taken into custody by authorities with the Texas attorney general's child exploitation unit.

The Ingrams were arrested after an undercover investigation revealed that child pornography was being linked to a laptop at the Ingrams' Kerrville home.

Armed with a search warrant, authorities went to the Ingram' home and discovered the child pornography.

In separate interviews, the Ingrams confessed to downloading and saving child pornography, according to a news release from the attorney general's office.

Ingram Sr. is expected to be charged with one count of possession of child pornography while his son faces three charges of promotion of child pornography.

If convicted, Ingram Sr. faces a maximum of 10 years in prison and Ingram Jr. faces 60 years.

Ingram Sr. was released from the Kerr County Jail Wednesday after posting $35,000 bail. His son remained in jail Thursday in lieu of $150,000 bail.

Ingram Jr. was sentenced to 10 years probation in 2014 for indecency with a 7-year-old girl in Bandera County, according to Texas Department to Public Safety records.

Ingram Jr. had been living in Bandera County, but he notified Kerrville police that he was moving to Kerrville in March, according to DPS records.
