FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. (KMOV) -- A Fairview Heights man on Tuesday admitted to producing child pornography after he distributed content to undercover officers.

Andrew Millas, 43, pleaded guilty to three counts of production of child pornography and one count of transportation of child pornography.

According to court documents, undercover officers in Boise, Idaho engaged in an online chat with Millas in December after they saw a posting on a website that offered child porn for distribution.

Police said Millas sent the undercover officers still images of child porn he made, as well as broadcasted a live sex act with a minor to them with a web cam.

Boise police sent a lead to Fairview Heights police, who arrested Millas in late December. Officers said they seized over 930,000 digital files of child pornography from his computer.

Police said one of the files found on Millas' computer showed him having sex with a 16-year-old child.
Millas has been in custody since his arrest. His sentencing is set for January 14, 2013. He faces 20 to 50 years in prison.
