A Mercer County man faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography.
According to a news release, law enforcement authorities executed a search warrant on Lawrence's home last October following an undercover operation.
Officials say authorities seized videos from the home that depicted prepubescent minors having sex or performing sexual acts. The child pornography was kept on a USB flash drive.
Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 27.
