Man pleads guiltyin child porn case

PITTSBURGH -- A Pulaski Township resident has pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to transportation of child pornography.

Wesley J. Rowlands, 23, of Gearhart Road, sent two child pornography photos via computer Oct. 7, 1999, to an undercover Los Angeles deputy sheriff, whom he believed was a 12-year-old boy, the U.S. attorney's office said. They continued to converse through an Internet chat room, and Rowlands asked this individual to make a videotape for him for $60, of which he paid $20 in advance, authorities said.

When the tape was delivered a month later to Rowlands at his residence, FBI agents and postal inspectors searched the premises and found more child pornography on Rowlands' computer, the U.S. attorney added. Sentencing is set for 9:30 a.m. Sept. 27.
