FARGO, North Dakota — Two North Dakota men have pleaded guilty to child pornography charges.

Federal court documents show that 30-year-old Dewayne Barth II, of Fargo, pleaded guilty to three counts, and 44-year-old Alan Eslinger, of Grand Forks, pleaded guilty to four counts.

Authorities say a search of Barth's residence found multiple electronic devices with more than 11,000 files of child pornography. He faces a maximum penalty of 60 years in prison.

Eslinger was arrested after police searched a garage that he leased in a Grand Forks industrial park. Eslinger faces 80 years in prison.

Both men are scheduled to be sentenced in September.
