WILMINGTON, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A Delaware registered sex offender has pleaded guilty to receipt of child pornography.

Sixty-four-year-old William D. Zimmerman of Georgetown entered the plea Thursday in federal court in Wilmington.

Zimmerman was convicted of second-degree unlawful sexual contact in 1988 and possession of child pornography in 1993. Because of his earlier convictions, he faces a maximum of 40 years in prison at sentencing April 22.

According to court documents, Zimmerman came to the attention of authorities during an investigation of two other men who had allegedly uploaded child pornography through an AOL server.

Earlier this month, state law enforcers executed a search warrant at Zimmerman's home. Prosecutors say hundreds of child porn images were found on computers equipment in his home.

Zimmerman is listed as a "high-risk" sex offender in the Delaware Sex Offender Central Registry.
