SAN DIEGO (AP) - A San Diego pediatric nurse who molested a 2-month-old premature boy in his care and made lewd photos of a baby girl has pleaded guilty to sexually exploiting them and distributing child pornography.

Michael Lutts accepted a plea deal on Thursday. He now faces up to 80 years in federal prison and agreed to forfeit his home.

Prosecutors say the 50-year-old Lutts molested and took lewd photos and videos of the boy and took lewd photos of an 11-month-old girl after they were placed in his care last year.

He also acknowledged emailing explicit images of children to others.
