NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a 34-year-old man has pleaded guilty to a one count indictment charging him with receipt of images and videos depicting the sexual exploitation of children.

U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite said in a news release Thursday that Joseph Rivera of New Orleans will be sentenced Jan. 26.

Polite says law enforcement officials executed a search warrant at Rivera’s home on Aug. 6, 2015, during which time they seized numerous electronic items including two computers, two external digital storage devices, and two DVDs contained images and videos of child pornography.

He says a forensic examination of the devices revealed Rivera had downloaded and saved images and videos of children as young as approximately 1-year-old engaging in sexually explicit conduct. The forensic examination located approximately 6,900 images and 885 videos.
