ST. CLAIR COUNTY, Ill. (KMOX) – A 29-year-old St. Clair County man pleads guilty to the distribution and receipt of child pornography.
Richard Lee Doerr is the third to plead guilty to a five-count superseding indictment charging him with various child pornography offenses.
The investigation into Doerr’s online activities began in late 2013 when the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received a report from Tumblr regarding someone who had uploaded child porn images.
The email account was tracked to Doerr, who later admitted to the charges.
He faces up to 100 years in prison when he’s sentenced in January.
