BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – A Wisconsin man now admits he posed as a modeling agent and lured girls in WNY into sending him illicit photos.

David Whitworth pleaded guilty to charges of producing and receiving child pornography. The Madison, Wisconsin man pretended to be a modeling agent and solicited minors in Cheektowaga, Lancaster and elsewhere, ultimately convincing them to take pornographic images of themselves. The minors then forwarded those pictures to Whitworth over the internet.

When he is sentenced in July, Whitworth could face a maximum sentence of 35 years in prison.
