OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - A 40-year-old man arrested by Tupelo police in 2014 on child pornography charges has pleaded guilty in federal court.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1WmHPAL) Christopher Sean Cooper, of Pontotoc, entered a guilty plea Thursday to a single count of distributing child pornography, including images of a child under the age of 12.

The offense carries at least five years and no more than 20 years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine.

No date has been set for the sentencing hearing.
