Olympia man pleads guilty to child pornography

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — An Olympia man accused of trading child pornography that included some children as young as toddlers pleaded guilty Monday to possessing and dealing depictions of minors engaged in sexual explicit conduct.

Prosecutors are recommending a three-year prison term when 72-year-old John Robert Franklin is sentenced Jan. 26 in Thurston County Superior Court.

Franklin was arrested in July as part of a federal investigation. In December 2013, federal agents had arrested a Seattle man and discovered Franklin had exchanged sexually explicit images with him.

According to court documents, the photos and videos included victims as young as toddlers.
