BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A former deputy U.S. marshal who is accused of peeping at women in dressing rooms plans to plead guilty to a federal child porn charge.

According to a plea agreement signed last week, Michael Rivera admitted to downloading pictures and videos of young girls from the internet. He admitted to having at least 36 sexually explicit pictures and 52 videos of girls from ages 6 to 11.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/2jVDOZB ) the images were found on Rivera’s computer as police were investigating state allegations that he had recorded 19 women in store dressing rooms around Bismarck.

A plea hearing on the federal count is scheduled for Thursday. Rivera faces trial on the state charges Jan. 30.

A message left Tuesday with his attorney wasn’t immediately returned.
