(MTN News-HELENA) A Helena man accused of receiving child porn from the internet pleads guilty.

Michael Lee Boman was charged earlier this year with felony Sexual Abuse of Children for downloading images of child sex abuse.

When investigators asked about the pictures, Boman claimed the images were of adults. Investigators say many of the images were obviously of children engaged in sex.

On Wednesday in District Court, Boman said he allegedly downloaded the images from Tumblr.

“I’m not a sex offender,” said Boman. “I obtained (the pictures) from a legal website. But I take responsibility for my actions.”

Judge Mike Menahan ordered a pre-sentence investigation in the case as well as a psycho-sexual evaluation for Boman.

Boman will be sentenced in August.

He faces up to 100-years in prison.
