LAS VEGAS (AP) — Prosecutors say a 37-year-old registered sex offender has pleaded guilty to a child pornography charge in Las Vegas that could get him 15-to-40 years in federal prison

U.S. Attorney Daniel Bogden says Brian Michael Brewer of Mesquite entered his plea Tuesday to a receipt of child pornography charge. His trial had been scheduled Feb. 2.

Bogden says Brewer is registered after a prior felony child sexual molestation conviction in Washington state involving a 7-year-old girl.

He'll be sentenced March 22 in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas.

Brewer's federal public defender didn't immediately respond to messages.

Bogden says the case developed after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children was notified in July 2015 that a user with a Nevada address uploaded images to an online site called Padlet.
