JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -

A 38-year-old Jacksonville man pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of using a minor to produce videos depicting child pornography.

Charles Hudson Jr. faces 15-30 years in federal prison and a potential life term of supervised release on each count. Hudson was arrested in Jacksonville on Jan. 8 and has been in custody since that time.

According to court documents, on Jan. 6, an officer with the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office was dispatched to a home in Jacksonville in response to a call regarding allegations of sexual battery on a minor. JSO sex crimes detectives interviewed the child, who indicated that she had been sexually abused by Hudson.

On Jan. 8, JSO detectives obtained a search warrant for Hudson's home in Jacksonville. Hudson was arrested later that day.

During the execution of the search warrant at his home, officers discovered, among other things, numerous items of digital media including multiple computers, cameras, SD cards, CDs and DVDs. Located in the attic of the home was a backpack containing cameras, sex devices and restraints, along with several pill bottles bearing Hudson's name. One of the pill bottles contained five SD media cards.

Subsequent forensic analysis of the media cards revealed that they contained about 90 video and image files that depicted sexually explicit conduct involving Hudson. At least two of the videos, which had been produced by Hudson, depicted Hudson and a minor child engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
