      A Providence man faces child pornography charges for the third time in less than two years.

      Rhode Island State Police arrested 20-year-old Gregory Lombardi on Monday and charged him with the possession and transfer of child pornography.

      Police said Lombardi was arrested on similar charges in February, and in October 2012. Both of the cases are still pending.

      Investigators said Lombardi has uploaded photos to image sharing websites, shared them on social media and solicited children to send him nude photos.
