A 54-year-old Bluefield, West Virginia man is facing up to 20 years in prison after admitting he had child pornography on his personal computers.

U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin said David A. Punturi told U.S. District Court Judge David A. Faber he had pictures of prepubescent minors engaged in sexual acts on his computers in August.

He is scheduled for sentencing Sept. 2 in Bluefield.

The West Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department conducted the investigation, Goodwin said. Assistant U.S. Attorney Lisa G. Johnston is in charge of the prosecution.
