      SC man pleads guilty to sending child porn charges

      PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Federal prosecutors say a South Carolina man has pleaded guilty to sending pictures of himself engaged in sexual activity with two young girls over the Internet to a Maine man.

      Daniel Cobb of Rock Hill, S.C., pleaded guilty Thursday in U.S. District Court in Portland to two counts of production of child pornography.

      Authorities say the 37-year-old Cobb took photographs and videos of himself sexually exploiting the girls, ages 8 and 6, and sent some to David Muise of Portland. The girls were daughters of a friend.

      Cobb was arrested on a criminal complaint out of the District of Maine in November.

      Cobb faces a maximum of 30 years in prison at sentencing at a future date.

      Muise was sentenced earlier this month to 25 years in prison.
