LAFAYETTE - An Evangeline Parish man who already had been convicted of molestation of a juvenile now has pleaded guilty in federal court in Lafayette to possession of child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley says 53-year-old Ricky Johnson, of Chataignier (shuh-TAN'-yuhn), pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Richard T. Haik.

Finley says evidence entered at the guilty plea showed that a computer Johnson used had child pornography downloaded from a file-sharing network. In September 2010, the computer and other electronic devices of Johnson's were searched, where images and videos of child pornography were found.

Johnson faces up to 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and a lifetime of supervised release. Johnson's sentencing date wasn't released.
