BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) _ A Hartford man is facing sentencing for producing child pornography.

Eliezer Maldonado is scheduled to be sentenced Monday in federal court in Bridgeport.

Authorities say investigators executed a search warrant last year at Maldonado’s house. On that date, they say, Maldonado admitted that on multiple occasions he had engaged in sexual acts with a victim who was younger than 12.

Prosecutors say he also admitted he used a smartphone to take photographs of the minor engaged in sexually explicit poses, and posted the images to an online file-sharing service.

Authorities say Maldonado’s smartphone had eight images of the minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct and Maldonado’s email and online storage accounts had about 5,500 images and 267 videos of child pornography.
