Omaha man pleads guilty to producing child pornography

An Omaha man has pleaded guilty to producing child pornography for filming himself raping a 13-year-old child.

Federal prosecutors in Nebraska said in a press release that 38-year-old Steven Carlson entered the plea Friday to one count of production of child pornography. He faces decades in prison when he’s sentenced on May 10.

Prosecutors say that as part of the plea, Carlson admitted that in May 2016, he filmed himself abusing a 13-year-old nonverbal child. Officials say a search warrant executed on Carlson’s home resulted in the discovery of hundreds of images of child pornography involving minors as young as infants.
