A Pownal, Vt., man faces 21 years in federal prison after pleading guilty in federal court to child pornography charges stemming from raids on homes he maintained in Pownal and in Troy, N.Y.

Edward K. Carnes pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing child pornography. He faced a possible sentence of 10 to 20 years on each count.

In U.S. District Court in Albany, Carnes told Judge Gary Sharpe he was a pedophile who had had a lifelong attraction to young boys.

Carnes was convicted in 1998 of sexually abusing an 8-year-old boy, and was given a two-to-four-year sentence.
