NEW BERN, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington man has pleaded guilty to a federal child pornography charge. Matthew Bryan Warford entered the plea to transportation of child pornography yesterday at the federal courthouse in New Bern.

Investigators say on August 22, 2010, Warford transported images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. They say Warford was arrested last year after a tip from the National Center for Missing Exploited Children that child pornography had been uploaded to Photobucket.com. Investigators tracked the IP address to Warford’s Wilmington home and learned he was a registered sex offender from a 2009 conviction.

Warford faces up to 40 years in prison
