(KMOV) – A southern Illinois man pleaded guilty Monday to child pornography.
According to authorities, Mark Reynolds, 49, of Hartford, Ill., was indicted on two counts -- one for Enticement of a Minor, the other for Receipt of Child Pornography.
Police say Reynolds, who is a registered sex offender, knowingly participated in a sexually explicit chat with a 16-year-old Massachusetts girl last January and requested nude pictures of her.
Later, in a taped statement, Reynolds said he received pictured from the girl and that he also sent nude photographs to the victim.
Reynolds will serve at minimum 10 years in prison and five years of supervised release. He will also pay a $250 thousand fine.
Sentencing is scheduled for August 8 in East St. Louis, Ill.
