PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - A Pender County man could face more than 30 years in prison, after pleading guilty to manufacturing child pornography.

38-year-old Dennis Stephen Johnston entered the plea in Federal Court Wednesday.

Pender County detectives arrested Johnston after they received information from one of Johnston's victims.

Investigators said they found evidence of his sexual abuse of children and pornographic images downloaded from the internet.

Johnston could get up to 30 years on each count when he's sentenced in December.
