CEDAR RAPIDS (AP)--An Evansdale man has entered a guilty plea to charges of transportation of child pornography and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Michael Sampson pleaded guilty to the charges on Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids. A sentencing date for the 37-year-old Sampson has not yet been set, but he faces up to 40 years in prison and a fine.

During a plea hearing, Sampson admitted to transporting over the Internet images of a minor engaged in an explicit sexual act.
