KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – The former city attorney of Manhattan has been charged with distributing and possessing child pornography.

Fifty-three-year-old Bill Raymond, of Andover, was arrested Tuesday on four federal charges. Although he was indicted last month, the charges weren’t announced until Tuesday because that is when he is making his first court appearance in Kansas City, Kansas. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

Raymond served as the Manhattan city attorney from December 2012 through this August. Before that, he was the chief assistance county counselor for Sedgwick County.

Assistant city manager Kiel Mangus says the city won’t comment on what he described as a “personnel matter”

The U.S. attorney’s office says Raymond faces up to 20 years on the three distribution counts and 10 years on the possession charge.
