Angelina County Man Admits To Child Pornography Charges

The U.S. Attorney's office says a 38 year old Angelina County man has plead guilty to sexually exploiting minors and possessing child pornography.

They say Ronnie Gurganus, Jr. made the plea last week in District Court.

According to information in court, Garganus enticed a minor child to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing child pornography.

Officials say he now faces a federal prison sentence of ten to twenty years and a fine of up to $250,000.

A sentencing date has not yet been set.
