LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A former Pleasure Ridge Park firefighter was in court Tuesday and pleaded guilty to child pornography charges.

James Mason was arrested in December after sexually explicit images were found on a computer behind the PRP Fire Station. He resigned two days before he was arrested and charged with three counts of possessing child porn and one count of tampering with evidence.

Tuesday, Mason pleaded guilty to all four counts. Each charge carries a one to five year sentence, but under the agreement Mason would serve the time concurrently. He now faces a total of five years in prison.

Mason’s formal sentencing will be in July.
