PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A Colorado man has pleaded guilty to sending a picture of himself engaged in sexually explicit behavior with a minor to an undercover federal agent in Maine.

David William Burkman, of Canon City, Colorado, pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in Portland to sexually exploiting a child and transporting child pornography.

Prosecutors say in March, Burkman took pictures of himself engaged in sexually explicit conduct with a 6-year-old girl. The next month, he sent an email message to the undercover account of a Homeland Security Investigations agent in Maine that included one of the photos.

The 30-year-old Burkman faces up to 50 years in prison on the sexual exploitation charge at a sentencing hearing scheduled for Jan. 29.
