GREENBELT, Md. (AP) - A St. Mary’s County man has pleaded guilty to production of child pornography after prosecutors say he hid a camera in a bathroom he shared with a 14-year-old boy.

Forty-nine-year-old Ronald Davis Pope of Mechanicsville entered the plea Monday in federal court in Greenbelt. Prosecutors say if a judge accepts the plea deal, Pope will be sentenced to more than 19 years in prison at sentencing June 3.

According to his plea agreement, Pope lived with a family last year. Prosecutors say Pope secretly recorded the teen in the shower and transferred the videos to his computer and cellphone.
