Robinson, who had been a GS-15 employee at NASA's In-Space Propulsion, Mission and Systems Management Division, based at the agency's Washington headquarters, faces a prison sentence of five to 20 years for sending digital pornographic movies involving children to three undercover U.S. postal inspectors.

Robinson was remanded to custody; sentencing is set for October 13.
