A former Henrico County sheriff's deputy has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges.
John Harlan Mullins faces up to 20 years in prison. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports he's set to be sentenced on June 29 in federal court in Richmond on one count of receiving child pornography.
Court documents show Mullins accessed dozens of images from a child porn website, and federal agents seized several computers at his home.
The 53-year-old Mullins was a sheriff's deputy in Henrico from February 1989 until his retirement last June.
