   PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) -- Prosecutors say a former Fort Campbell soldier has pleaded guilty to charges of possessing and transporting child pornography while living at the military installation on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line and while deployed to Iraq.

   U.S. Attorney David J. Hale said in a news release Wednesday that 25-year-old Timothy Lee Hansen entered a guilty plea on Tuesday to a four-count indictment in federal court in Paducah.

   Hansen was accused of downloading, storing and trading digital images of child pornography in 2011. The FBI tracked the IP address to a computer belonging to Hansen and located in barracks at Fort Campbell.

   Hansen was assigned to the 5th Special Forces Group. He faces a statutory mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison.
