KNOXVILLE (News Sentinel) -

A Wartburg man pleaded guilty Thursday morning to federal sex crimes involving an infant relative and faces 40 years in prison pending an April 9 sentencing hearing.

Tommy Lee Waugh, 29, pleaded guilty to one count of production of child pornography and violation of the federal sex offender registry by committing the crime while on probation for a previous sex offense.

Waugh pleaded guilty in front of Chief U.S. District Judge Tom Varlan.

The plea stemmed from a case in which the Knoxville Police Department's Internet Crimes Against Children unit received a tip someone had produced and distributed images that showed sexual abuse of an infant.
