Psychologist pleads guilty in child porn case

IOWA CITY (AP) -- An Iowa City psychologist has pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges.

A plea agreement filed Wednesday in district court says Howard Weinberg pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography for having more than 600 computer images of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Iowa City police charged Weinberg with possessing child pornography last April. Authorities were called to a computer service center after technicians discovered child pornography on a computer Weinberg brought into the shop for repairs.

Weinberg is facing a maximum penalty of up to 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, or both.

Weinberg's sentencing date has not yet been set.
