DEVILS LAKE, N.D. (AP) - A Starkweather-area man facing felony child pornography charges has changed his plea to guilty.

Nineteen-year-old Robert Hopp was arrested last August after an investigation by the Ramsey County Sheriff's Office and an attorney general's task force targeting Internet crimes against children.

Authorities allege Hopp had about 2,000 images and 100 videos of child porn on his laptop and desktop computers. Hopp faces up to five years in prison, but State's Attorney Lonnie Olson says he will recommend a one-year sentence with four years suspended. A sentencing date has not been set.
