(WSYR-TV) — A former Border Patrol agent from Oswego has pleaded guilty to child porn charges.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that Keith Hook traded the explicit pictures both on and off duty.

U.S. Attorney’s say Hook admitted to using the messenger app to send and receive child porn last year. Investigators say they also found videos and hundreds of pictures saved on his iCloud storage.

Hook will face at least 5 years in prison, as well as a supervised release and a fine of up to $250,000.
