LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) – 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.
