PHOENIX (AP) - In a story June 3 about a child pornography case in Phoenix, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Scott Thomas Harmon of Glendale had been released on bond. He actually agreed to a plea agreement and was taken into custody.

A corrected version of the story is below:

Glendale man pleads guilty in sex exploitation case

Glendale man pleads guilty to four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor

PHOENIX (AP) - A Glendale man arrested last year on suspicion of downloading child pornography has pleaded guilty to four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Maricopa County prosecutors say 37-year-old Scott Thomas Harmon will be sentenced July 2.

Harmon’s case dates back to April 2011 when police served a search warrant at his home.

According to court paperwork, Harmon admitted to downloading about 100 images a week of underage children.

He was arrested in May 2013 by officers armed with a grand jury warrant and booked into jail on suspicion of seven counts of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Prosecutors say Harmon agreed to a plea deal Monday and was taken into custody pending his sentencing.
