Convicted sex offender pleads guilty to receiving child pornography


WILMINGTON, Delaware — A man previously convicted of dealing in child pornography has pleaded guilty to another child pornography charge.

Twenty-four-year-old Eric Aldrich of Milford pleaded guilty on Wednesday to receipt of child pornography in federal court in Wilmington.

According to court documents, in June 2014, about a month after Aldrich was released from prison on the earlier charge, law enforcers received a tip that Aldrich had uploaded files containing child pornography to YouTube.

After raiding Aldrich's home, authorities says computer equipment containing over 5,000 still images and 200 videos depicting child pornography was seized.

Aldrich faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison at sentencing Aug. 7.
