NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

A New Orleans man was indicted on a possession of child pornography charge after a security officer claimed to see a graphic image on his phone.

Investigators said an officer at The Social Security Administration Office claimed the display screen on Charles Hall's phone showed the sexual abuse of a prepubescent child.

Hall was instructed to take all items from his pockets prior to walking through the metal detector. 

According to the indictment, the officer asked Hall to silence his cell phone. When he did, the image displayed on the phone. 

Hall was taken into custody. 

If convicted, Hall could serve time in prison and be forced to register as a sex offender.
