Man waives detention hearing in child porn case

(WXYZ) - Sean Gossman will stay detained until his preliminary exam on child porn charges.

The 24-year-old appeared in federal court with bright red-dyed, long hair and kept his head down at all times.

He waived his detention hearing, agreeing to stay locked up for now.

A U.S. attorney spokeswoman says there's no indication Gossman took the photo of the deceased baby that was found in his cache of pornographic images.

The FBI is checking with offices around the country to see if the child featured in the disturbing image is known to any law enforcement and with the national center for missing and exploited children.

Gossman faces up to 20 years behind bars for receiving and possessing child pornography.
