A 70-year-old Half Moon Bay man has pleaded no contest to felony possession of child pornography, San Mateo County prosecutors said Monday.
Christopher O'Donnell entered the plea Friday in exchange for a sentence of no more than three years in prison, according to the district attorney's office.
O'Donnell was charged in 2012 after FBI investigators came across posts he made on an online message board concerning child pornography. Search warrants revealed binders of child pornography in his home and more than 2,500 images and 200 videos of child porn on his computer, prosecutors said.
O'Donnell, who remains in custody on $100,000 bail, will return to court on Aug. 4 for sentencing.
