A Fort Thomas man who described himself as a political consultant has pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography.
Between February 2007 and July 2008, Kenneth Mullikin Jr., 58, used his home computer to download more than 700 still images and 98 videos of children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, according to a press release from the U.S. Attorney's office. Some of the images were of children under 12 years old, and some depicted sadistic acts, the release said.
Mullikin faces between five and 20 years in prison and could be on supervised release for the rest of his life. He is scheduled to be sentenced at 10 a.m. Oct. 13 in U.S. District Court in Covington.
