(KSL News) The man who calls himself the "king of kiddie porn" will be sentenced today in federal court.

Kirk Swearingen pleaded guilty last week to one count of possession of child pornography. He'll spend a mandatory 10 years in federal prison, possibly more -- up to 20 years.

Swearingen was wanted in Iowa for sexually abusing two minors in 2001, and he was caught in Utah trying to use a fake social security card to rent an apartment.
