A Topeka man has pleaded guilty in federal court of receiving child pornography, authorities said.
Armando L. Ramos, 45, faces a prison term of at least 5 years and a fine of up to $250,000.
At his plea hearing, prosecutors told the court forensic examiners found more than 100,000 images of child pornography on three computers, 22 hard drives, and an external drive they seized July 30, 2009, from Ramos’ home in Topeka.
The investigation began when German authorities investigating child pornography stored on a peer-to-peer network downloaded child pornography from Ramos’ computer.
They alerted Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The photos included children as young as five years old involved in sexual acts.
Ramos is set for sentencing Feb. 28, 2011.
