BATON ROUGE - An attorney accused of receiving child porn over the course of three years pleaded guilty to the charges against him Thursday in Baton Rouge.

Steven Mannear, 62, faced charges from both federal and state authorities in the investigation. A bill of information was filed against him in May.

The U. S. Attorney's Office said Mannear received the porn between Aug. 2009 and Sept. 2012. Investigators said in court filings that more than 600 images and videos depicting child pornography were found on Mannear's computer.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office, and the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

Mannear's charges carried a mandatory minimum five-year sentence. The judge will issue a formal sentence at a later date.
