A Huntington man pleaded guilty in federal court to collecting hundreds of images and videos of child pornography.
Raymond E. Leake, 34, pleaded guilty Monday to receiving child pornography, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin. Investigators said Leake downloaded more than 600 images and videos of child pornography. In January, investigators said Leake sent at least one image of child pornography over the Internet to a convicted pedophile.
Leake faces five to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced in October. The West Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force conducted the investigation.
Local police with the help of the FBI and the Internet Crimes Against Children have arrested a Huntington man during an online sting.
They arrested Raymond Leake, 34, at his apartment on Monroe Avenue.
Leake is charged with four counts of possessing child pornography. He was lodged in the Western Regional Jail.
Investigators said more charges could be coming.
