WASHINGTON -

A District of Columbia pediatrician has pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.

Robert Paul Dickey entered a guilty plea Thursday in U.S. District Court in Washington.

The 74-year-old doctor faces up to 20 years in prison and will be required to register as a sex offender for 15 years after he's released.

Dickey was arrested in May. Authorities acting on a tip say they recovered more than 130 images of child pornography in Dickey's possession. The case was investigated by both local and federal authorities.

Dickey's attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday afternoon.
