ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque man faces up to 19.5 years in prison after being convicted of child pornography charges.

The state Attorney General’s Office said District Judge Judith Nakamura on Tuesday convicted 50-year-old Thomas Dolphus of one count of possessing visual medium of sexual exploitation of children and two counts of manufacturing visual medium of sexual exploitation of children.

The Attorney General’s Office said investigators from that office and the Albuquerque Police Department found CDs created by Dolphus within thousands of images of children engaged in sexual acts.

However, Attorney General Hector Balderas said a 2014 New Mexico Supreme Court ruling in another man’s child pornography case required that the multiple counts of possession alleged in Dolphus case be reduced to one.

Dolphus is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 9.
