CLEVELAND (AP) - The son-in-law of a northeast Ohio mayor has pleaded guilty to downloading and possessing child pornography.

Cleveland.com reports (https://bit.ly/1OSGIae ) that 27-year-old Khalid Black pleaded guilty on Thursday in Cleveland to receipt of visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Black was living with Richfield Mayor Bobbie Beshara. He was arrested following a September raid of the mayor’s home.

Federal prosecutors are expected to drop a possession charge after Black is sentenced, scheduled for April 8. He faces at least five years in prison.

Records show that Black admitted to viewing child pornography about four times a week. He says he downloaded hundreds of pictures and videos.

Black’s attorney says that a federal probation agency will conduct a pre-sentence investigation. After, the judge will decide Black’s fate.
