BOISE, Idaho (KBOI) - A 61-year-old Boise man has pleaded guilty to downloading child porn on his computer.
According to Idaho court records, Thomas Gale Brown, pleaded guilty to two counts of child exploitation charges. He had originally been charged with 10 counts.
Authorities say detectives with the Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received information that led to an investigation into Brown. Officers say they found child pornography involving young boys on his home computer.
The Ada County Prosecutors Office says that Brown entered into a binding plea deal in which he would agree to a 20-year prison sentence, with 10 years fixed before he is eligible for parole.
Prosecutors say in exchange, they agreed to drop the additional charges, including the possibility of federal charges.
Brown is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 5.
