SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — A former Oneida County Child Protective Services caseworker and Utica police officer admits having child pornography on his home computer in the town of Frankfort.

Stanley Dorozynski pleaded guilty in federal court in Syracuse on Wednesday. He could face a maximum of 10 years in prison when he is sentenced on Dec. 7. He was immediately taken into custody following his plea.

Dorozynski will also have to register as a sex offender and pay a fine of up to $250,000.

He was responsible for investigating child abuse cases for the county agency, where he worked from 2008 until 2010 when his girlfriend found the pornography and called police.

More than 2,400 images of child pornography were found in his possession. Some showed young girls in sexual acts with adults.
