FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A Dallas-area man faces up to 30 years in prison in a child pornography case linked to a 17-year-old boy enrolled in elementary school allegedly to lure victims.

Randy Ray Wesson of Hurst pleaded guilty Wednesday to possession of child pornography and to receipt of child pornography. Wesson reached a plea agreement in federal court in Fort Worth.

The 29-year-old Wesson was arrested in November following a raid on his home. Police last June began the investigation after a photograph on Instagram showed a man and a child in a sex act.

Authorities believe Wesson enrolled a 17-year-old runaway in an elementary school, pretending the boy was his 12-year-old son to try to target children. The teen remains in custody on child porn-related counts.
