ROCHESTER, Minn. – An Eyota man is pleading guilty to child pornography.

Wyatt Henry King, 22, was charged in March with one count of disseminating pornography and 10 counts of possession of pornography. The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office says it received a tip in May 2017 from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force about suspected child porn allegedly being accessed by King.

Investigators say a search of King’s cellphone found 138 images and 38 videos of potential child pornography, with another four images and 15 videos in an online account connected to King.

On Tuesday, King pleaded guilty to three counts of possession of pornography. His sentencing is set for August 22.
