Police lights

AUSTIN (KXAN) — An Austin businessman faces up to 10 years in federal prison after pleading guilty Wednesday to possession of child pornography.

Daniel J. Sullivan, the president and CEO of Image Trends, Inc., was found to have approximately 600 images and 90 videos depicting child pornography on a computer after agents searched his home and business in March 2012.

U.S. Attorneys and Homeland Security Investigators said Sullivan, 67, remains on bond pending sentencing. No date has been scheduled.

Assistant US Attorney Matt Devlin is prosecuting the case on behalf of the government.
