Ex-NASA manager guilty in child porn case

A former NASA manager who was arrested in March on charges of distributing child pornography from both his government and home computers pleaded guilty yesterday in U.S. District Court in Alexandria, Va.

James R. 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.
