 A man from North Tonawanda could spend the next five to 20 years in prison for possessing child pornography.

26-year-old Scott Myers pleaded guilty to receipt of child pornography charges Monday, more than four years after attorneys say he exchanged sexually-explicit photographs with a 14-year-old girl.

Myers met the girl on a dating site in 2013; the two then sent photos to each other via Kik and Skype.

He told attorneys he knew the girl was a minor when they met.

Attorneys say he saved those photos and other child porn on several devices, including a thumb drive, two laptops and a cell phone.

And attorneys say Myers exchanged sexual messages with a different 13-year-old girl on Kik and via text message.

On top of prison time, Myers faces a $250,000 fine.
