Former tennis coach pleads guilty on child porn charges

ROME, Ga. (AP) - A former tennis coach has pleaded guilty in federal court to creating and distributing a long-running online child pornography series.

James "Bart" Huskey will be sentenced next Feb. 5. He could get 70 years in prison and a $750,000 fine.

Huskey is accused of raping a minor and posting the videos on the Internet as part of an encrypted Web site of himself with a young girl, given the pseudonym "Tara."

Prosecutors said the investigation began when the girl was five. She is now nine. Prosecutors say Huskey taped his encounters with the girl, and posted them in an online series that was widely circulated around the world.
