A doctor from Floyd County has posted bond following his arrest on child pornography charges.

Dr. Bret Dunning, age 50 of Dana was arrested at his home on Tuesday following an investigation by the Kentucky State Police.

Officials say Dunning was arrested and charged following an online investigation by detectives at the Pikeville post.

Officials also say they found three images of child pornography on a home computer during a search of his residence. The children were reported to be between 4 and 7-years-old.

Dunning was arraigned on one count of possession of matter portraying a sex performance by a minor during a hearing in Floyd County District Court.

Dunning posted the $25,000 cash bond after the hearing.

Court officials say other conditions of his bond are that he be on “strict” home confinement. Dunning is also not permitted to be within a 1,000 feet of any facility where there are children under the age of 18.
