PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - A California man has pleaded guilty to participating in a Panhandle-based child pornography ring.
The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Northern District of Florida says Raymond Roy of San Juan Capistrano, Calif., pleaded guilty Monday to five counts of criminal activity as a member of a group that engaged in child exploitation.
In March, 22 people from various countries were charged in the porn ring. In all, more than 400,000 pictures, video files and other images of children engaged in sexual behavior were traded and distributed globally, according to authorities.
Roy is the sixth defendant to plead guilty in the case.
