PASCAGOULA -- An Aug. 27 trial date has been set for a Moss Point man indicted on 24 charges of child exploitation.
Michael Alan Angel, of Mississippi 613, waived his arraignment Thursday and entered a plea of not guilty.
Jackson County sheriff's investigators arrested Angel at his home in October 2010 after a monthlong investigation.
Angel is accused of downloading numerous movies and photographs of children under age 18 engaged in sexual activity. The images were allegedly downloaded on or about Sept. 29, 2010, and some were found on disks.
Angel is out of jail on bond.
If convicted, he could go to prison for up to 40 years on each charge.
