Westfield man pleads guilty to child pornography charge

Richard Starr pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in Springfield to a single charge of possession of materials involving the sexual exploitation of minors.

The FBI traced an email requesting child pornography to the 56-year-old Starr’s home computer in 2008. The FBI and local police obtained a search warrant and seized multiple computers from Starr’s home. A forensic examination discovered the images and videos.

Starr faces up to 10 years in prison at sentencing, which is scheduled for May 9.
