MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a former Millington reserve police officer has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 67-year-old Rickie Friar pleaded guilty Wednesday to producing child pornography of three female minors and transporting a minor across state lines with intent to engage in unlawful sexual activity. He faces 15 years to life in prison at sentencing scheduled for Aug. 11.

Prosecutors say a forensic examination of Friar’s iPad and other electronic devices seized during a search of his home revealed videos and images of female minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Two of the victims were under 12 years old at the time. One was under 18.

Friar was located in Arkansas, returning from a trip to Oklahoma. He had a female minor with him.
