An elderly Newport has admitted to possessing child pornography, found after he took his PC in for repair.
George Moore faces up to 10 years in prison after his guilty plea in federal court Wednesday.
Authorities say in May 2007 the 74-year-old Moore took this personal computer into a repair business in Havelock where an employee found a number of images of children performing sexual acts.
After a search warrant, police say they found more than 10,000 sexually explicit images of children on another computer at the man's home.
Sentencing for Moore is set for February 22nd.
