A Big Spring man indicted on two counts of producing child pornography by a federal grand jury pleaded guilty Thursday, facing up to 50 years in prison, according to officials with the U.S. Attorneys office.
John Alan Conroy, 36, was first arrested by law enforcement officials July 3 on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child. Conroy was later taken into federal custody â€” where he remains â€” after allegations tied to the Dec. 27, 2009, incident identified in the indictment were made.
