Athol man admits child porn charge

An Athol, Idaho, man pleaded guilty Tuesday to a child pornography charge related to illicit material found during a search of his home in September 2010.

Samuel Ted Ussery, 50, faces up to five years in prison and three years of probation after pleading guilty to transportation of an obscene matter. He's scheduled to be sentenced March 26 by Judge Edward Lodge in U.S. District Court in Coeur d'Alene.

An investigator with the Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force began investigating Ussery in July 2010 after discovering that a computer with an IP address belonging to him used file sharing software to access child pornography.

A federal search warrant executed at Ussery's home at 6203 E. Highway 54 revealed computer equipment with images of child pornography that had been deleted but were able to be recovered, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
