WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A former Williams County corrections officer faces more than a dozen years in federal prison after pleading guilty to a child pornography charge.

The Williston Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1S1KNfL ) that 49-year-old Steve Brooks, of Williston, reached a deal with prosecutors that calls for a 14-year prison term.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland must agree. Brooks is to be sentenced June 20.

The nine-year veteran of the county sheriff’s office was fired after his arrest in May 2015.
