Man pleads guilty in child-porn case

A Joshua Tree man pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles to a charge of felony possession of child pornography.

Because the defendant, Gordon Douglas Cope, 58, has a prior conviction for sexual assault of a minor, he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles reported in a statement.

Cope could face as many as 20 years in prison.

Authorities who searched Cope's computers found 670 images and 20 videos of children, some as young as 5, engaged in sexual acts, prosecutors said. Law-enforcement officials identified victims of sexual assault in 83 images and two videos.

Under a plea agreement, Cope admitted he knew the images were pornography and depicted children under 12 years of age, according to prosecutors.

Undercover FBI agents, who posed online as people interested in child pornography, visited Internet chat rooms Cope had established. The chat rooms were used to trade and publish images of child pornography.

Cope pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge George P. Schiavelli, who is scheduled to sentence Cope on July 10.

A search of the Megan's Law website does not show Gordon Douglas Cope.

What is all the fuss about, Cope was probably just using the child porn for 'personal use' and Mark Leno says that's not a problem.
