HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

James McCullars, a former boy scout volunteer facing federal child pornography charges, now faces another indictment.

This is the fourth superseding indictment in the case, meaning the feds have presented this case to another federal grand jury, who in turn handed down indictments on a new set of charges.

James McCullars is accused of creating online chat rooms to trade child pornography and discuss sexual interest in young boys. WAFF-48 News confirmed McCullars worked at the Huntsville Scout Shop and as a boy scout volunteer. He also worked as the Director of Computer and Network Services at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. The criminal complaint against McCullars stated McCullars told one of the members of his online forum that he, "...camped with boys and molested them".

This week a federal grand jury indicted McCullars on charges including Conspiracy to Distribute and Receive Child Pornography, Conspiracy to Sexually Exploit a Child, Child Pornography Enterprise, and Receiving Child Pornography.

A man from New York is also charged in this case. Federal prosecutors also list 13 other unindicted co-conspirators.
