      Columbia man pleads guilty to possessing child porn

      A Columbia man pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.

      53-year-old Joseph Clark entered a plea Monday in Boone County Circuit Court after almost a year long investigation by the Boone County Sheriff's Department Cyber Crimes Task Force.

      The investigation started when a local computer repair business reported finding child pornography on a computer that had been brought for repair.

      A few weeks ago, the task force issued a search warrant for Clarkâ??s house, thatâ??s where they seized two additional computers.

      Clark's final sentencing is scheduled for June 18.
