SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa man who received child pornography has pleaded guilty to the charge in federal court in Sioux City.

Federal prosecutors say 27-year-old Joe Elliott Sinnott, of Milford, was convicted Tuesday of one count of receiving child pornography.

In a plea agreement, Sinnott admitted that from January through April, he knowingly used a messenger app to receive child pornography. Sinnott also admitted to receiving fully nude photographs of a 15-year-old girl that he had met in person in Minnesota last year.

Sinnott will remain in custody until his sentencing at a later date, when he faces up to 20 years in prison.
