Ricky Patten, 41,  pleaded guilty in Cedar Rapids federal court Friday to one count of producing child pornography and two counts of possessing child pornography.

At the plea hearing, Patten admitted to the charges that happened between 2008 and 2010. He admitted to producing images of child pornography and then possessed these images on camera cards.
