The former mayor of Beaverton, Oregon, pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court to illegally possessing child pornography, according to a Department of Justice news release.
Dennis “Denny” Doyle, 73, waived indictment and pleaded guilty to a single count of possession of child pornography.
Between November 2014 and December 2015, Doyle knowingly and unlawfully possessed digital media containing child pornography. Several of the images Doyle possessed were of children under the age of 12 who had been identified as known sexually exploited minors by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, according to court documents.
Doyle was charged by criminal information with one count of possession of child pornography on March 3.
