He was charged with three counts of receipt of materials involving sexual exploitation of minors and one count of possessing materials involving exploitation of minors.

Sentencing is scheduled for July 9.

The case was investigated by the Grand Forks Police Department, the North Dakota Bureau of Criminal Investigation and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement - Homeland Security Investigations.
