BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - A former Boy Scout leader who tricked a troop member into sending him sexually explicit pictures of himself has pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography.

Daniel Huzinec (HEWE’-zihn-ehk) faces five to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty in federal court in Buffalo Tuesday.

Federal prosecutors say the 25-year-old was arrested two years ago and admitted to taking sexually explicit pictures of a sleeping teenage boy. Authorities say he also posed as a teenage girl online and enticed a 15-year-old former member of his Boy Scout troop to email him explicit pictures.

Sentencing is scheduled for April 27.
