Rocklin man pleads guilty to child pornography charge

A Rocklin man pleaded guilty today in federal court in Sacramento to possessing child pornography.

John Patrick Frost Jr., 28, admitted to one count of possessing visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, according to a federal Department of Justice news release.

On March 12, 2009, a photo-sharing website reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children Cybertipline that a user had posted child pornography to their page, according to court documents. Further investigation led to a Placer County residence where Frost spent time.

According to the plea agreement, Frost admitted that between March 1 and Aug. 9, 2009, he knowingly possessed images of child pornography. He further admitted that he had two prior state convictions involving child pornography.

Frost is to be sentenced Jan. 23 by U.S. District Judge Lawrence K. Karlton.

The case resulted from an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Cyber Crimes Task Force and the Justice Department's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section High Technology Investigative Unit.
