Two Roane County men pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography in federal court.

US District Attorney Booth Goodwin says Adam K. Seen, 24, and Jacob T. Seen, 23, have admitted that on December 3, 2009, they possessed more than 600 images and videos depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Officials said the men admitted they knew the images and videos contained child pornography with many of the images depicting prepubescent minors.

All of the images and videos were downloaded off the Internet by the men, according to a press release.

Officials said Jacob Seen admitted that he was using a peer-to-peer file-sharing program Limewire to receive and send child pornography.

Adam Seen, at the time of the charge, was employed as the Information Technology Specialist for the Roane County Schools.

Adam and Jacob Seen face up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine when they are sentenced on May 16, 2012.

The press release says the West Virginia State Police Internet Crimes Against Children conducted the investigation.

Assistant United States Attorney Lisa Johnston is in charge of the prosecution.
