NORTH PLATTE, Nebraska — A 57-year-old North Platte man suspected of posting some child pornography on a Facebook page is scheduled to be sentenced on Oct. 6.
On Monday James Burnside pleaded guilty in Lincoln County District Court to one count of possession of child pornography. Burnside had been charged with two counts after he was arrested.
Police say they were notified in January by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that a North Platte resident had uploaded an image of possible child pornography to a Facebook page. Police say a subsequent search of Burnside's computer turned up some child porn.
