COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) — A Columbus man has pleaded guilty to six counts of possessing child pornography.
The Columbus Telegram reported that sentencing has been set Jan. 31 for 35-year-old Christopher Fleming. Prosecutors dropped six counts of porn distribution and two more counts of child porn possession in exchange for Fleming’s pleas.
Fleming fled from the Columbus area in mid-April after an arrest warrant was issued. He surrendered in May.
At an earlier court hearing, Fleming told a judge he ignored the warrant so he could spend time with his dying father in Texas.
