Robert Hopp, 18, pleaded guilty to the Class C felony charge March 30 in state District Court.

Ramsey County State's Attorney Lonnie Olson said Hopp's Internet service provider told authorities that child pornography files were being downloaded onto Hopp's computer.

Investigators conducted a search Aug. 27 and found in Hopp's possession about 100 videos and less than 50 still images that were deemed to be child pornography, Olson said.
