LAKE CHARLES, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - A 29-year-old Leesville man has pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography in a federal court in Lake Charles.

Elliot R. Duke entered his plea Thursday before U.S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi.

During his court appearance, evidence was presented that showed law enforcement had received a tip that child pornography was on Duke's computer and a subsequent search of his house in May 2013 found it on a laptop.

U.S. Attorney Stephanie Finley says a forensic search of the laptop found that Duke had been trading child pornography through emails and had about 168 videos and 187 still images.

Sentencing has been set for April 24.
