FORT WORTH, TX (CBSDFW.COM) – The Hurst man who allegedly sent a 17-year-old to pose as an elementary school student to lure children to him, pleaded guilty to child pornography possession.

Randy Ray Wesson, 29, pleaded guilty, to one count of possession of child pornography and one count of receipt of child pornography. Sentencing is set for June 25 when Wesson will face up to 30 years in federal prison if the court accepts the plea bargain.

Wesson has been in custody since his arrest in last November.

According to Hurst police, Wesson had 17-year-old Ricardo Lugo posing as a sixth-grade student at Hurst Hills Elementary School.  Lugo attended the school from August until his arrest in November.

Detectives say Wesson has admitted to abusing more than 100 children.

Authorities raided the home occupied by Wesson and Lugo last November, where they seized a large amount of evidence of child pornography and exploitation of children. Wesson told police that he possessed more than 42,000 images of child pornography.
