Norfolk, Va. – One active duty sailor is facing 20 years behind bars after officials say he pleaded guilty to receiving child porn on a ship.

They say Douglas Lawrence  True, 23, was looking at child porn on a ship’s computer.

Command searched and seized his cellphone and they found out that he’d been talking to minors encouraging them to send him explicit photos.

They say he also convinced one woman, Rebecca Gibbs, to take pictures of herself performing sex acts on her one-year-old son.

She pleaded guilty to producing child porn in September and faces 15 years in prison. She will be sentenced in January 2015 and True will be sentenced in February.
