Thompson Man Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography Charge

A Thompson man has pleaded guilty to sharing child pornography over the internet.

Simon Korst pleaded guilty to one count each of possessing child pornography and promoting an obscene performance by a minor.

The North Dakota B-C-I seized Korst's computer last January and there were videos showing children in a sexual manner found on it.

Korst reached a plea agreement with prosecutors. Which calls for him to spend 1 year in jail and register as a sex offender.
