GREENEVILLE — A 25-year-old Johnson City man pleaded guilty to a federal child porn charge on Monday and faces up to 10 years in prison when sentenced later this year.


Charles Steven Bradley, 209 Ashley Road, Johnson City, appeared in U.S. District Court in Greeneville on Monday and pleaded guilty to one count charging him with knowingly possessing a computer hard drive with child pornography images.


Bradley faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, five years probation and a $250,000 fine when sentenced Oct. 20. Bradley, who turned himself in on Monday, will remain in custody until sentenced.


According to the plea agreement, on Dec. 11, 2007, FBI agents examined Bradley’s personal computer — an Apple Mac Mini computer — and found a folder with a video of child porn.


Court records state the agent observed the video, which portrayed rape of a child by an adult male. Further analysis of the computer revealed various pictures of Bradley himself and five video files containing pre-pubescent minors, court records state.


Under the plea agreement, Bradley has agreed to fully cooperate with all law enforcement agents and not to protect anyone who was involved in the commission of the crime.
