WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- A 74-year-old pediatrician has plead guilty of possession of child pornography, officials said.

Robert Paul Dickey who was arrested on May 8, faces a maximum of 10 years behind bars and a fine of $250,000. A "cyber tip" led officials to searching his home in SE and recovered about 132 images of child pornography on various electronic devices, officials said.

In a press release, Assistant Director Parlave said, "Dr. Dickey was entrusted to care for our most precious resource, our children, but today he admitted to violating that trust by uploading child pornography to a shared website. The FBI will continue to actively investigate crimes against children and pursue those who victimize innocent children."
