A New Richmond business man and one-time candidate for the Osceola municipal judge position pleaded guilty to a charge of possessing child pornography Monday.

Jason M. Pape, 37, Town of Osceola resident, admitted to the charges in U.S. district court.

The New Richmond Police Department, Polk County Sheriff's Department and the FBI worked together in the investigation of the case. Officials allegedly found three computer hard drives and a thumb drive that contained images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for May 15.
