FARGO – A 27-year-old man pleaded guilty in federal court here on Wednesday to having hundreds of child pornography images on his computer.

An investigation into Jared Tyler Allen of Fargo was launched after investigators found child pornography was being shared from a North Dakota computer, a release from federal prosecutors said.

Homeland Security investigators and local officers seized two computers from Allen’s south Fargo apartment and found more than 3,400 images and 175 videos depicting child porn, the release said.

Allen pleaded guilty to one count of receipt of materials involving the sexual exploitation of minors and another count of possession of materials involving sexual exploitation of minors.

He faces a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.

Allen is scheduled for sentencing on May 12 in U.S. District Court in Fargo.
