PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A Wisconsin man faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty in federal court in Maine to transporting child pornography.

Ryan Abbott of Plymouth, Wisconsin, entered his plea Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Portland.

Prosecutors say the 23-year-old Abbott sent several emails in October to the undercover account of a federal agent in Maine. Some of those messages contained links to folders of child pornography images stored on a cloud storage website. Other messages contained attached video files depicting children engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Abbott was arrested in Wisconsin in December and brought to Maine to face charges.

A sentencing date has not yet been scheduled.
