NEW UNDERWOOD, S.D. — A registered sex offender plans to plead guilty for the same crime he was convicted of in 2005.
In April, 47-year-old Kent Joy from New Underwood was back behind bars on federal child pornography charges. He is expected to enter a guilty plea.
Court documents say authorities found more than 4,700 images and over 500 videos of child pornography on six devices that were taken from Joy’s home.
In a factual basis statement, Joy admits to struggling with an addiction to child porn. He faces between 15 to 40 years in prison when he’s sentenced.
