Michael Sondheimer, 58, is charged with one felony count of possession of matter depicting a minor engaging in sexual conduct, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

A criminal complaint alleges that the material was found in April of 2013.

If convicted, Sondheimer faces up to three years in state prison.

He is due back in court on May 8.
