A 44-year-old Dundalk man pleaded guilty yesterday to receiving images of child pornography over the Internet, according to the Maryland U.S. Attorney's Office.

Scott Carpenter, of the 4000 block of St. Monica Drive, faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of 20 years in federal prison when he is sentenced June 27.

Prosecutors said an FBI agent searching the Internet for suspected child sex abusers got a response from a user later identified as Carpenter, who provided the agent with 17 images of children engaged in sex acts.

Authorities said two of the images were of children that had been previously identified as victims by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Prosecutors said agents searched Carpenter's house in February 2007 and recovered hundreds of images from his computer of children and pornography.
