LUZERNE — A man pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to receiving and distributing child pornography.

Federal investigators said Michael Shaw, 38, of Luzerne admitted to using his computer to download and trade child porn from 2012 through June 2013.

Shaw was charged with the crimes in September.

Shaw faces up to 20 years in prison, and a fine of $250,000 when he is sentenced.

Shaw was also arrested earlier this year on charges that he molested a boy in Luzerne County and posted pictures of the abuse on line.
