SEATTLE (AP) - Federal officials say a 53-year old Bothell, Washington, man has pleaded guilty to producing, distributing and possessing child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Annette Hayes says Donald McCoy Jr. was arrested in October 2016.

McCoy faces a mandatory minimum 15 years in prison and up to 30 years in prison when he’s sentenced on March 12, 2018.

Federal law enforcement identified McCoy when an undercover agent using peer-to-peer file sharing software saw images of child rape being shared from a computer tied to an internet address traced to McCoy’s residence.

Hayes says an investigation found that McCoy had made images of the molestation of four children between the ages of six and 13.

Officials say McCoy molested several children while they were asleep.
