    An Abingdon man is facing a maximum penalty of 5 years in prison on each of 100 charges of possession of child pornography that he admitted to in a Russell County court Wednesday.

    Jonathan Earl Armitage orginally was indicted on 400 counts in 2017 and 2018.

    Commonwealth's Attorney Zack Stoots said Armitage pleaded guilty as part of a plea bargain agreement in which 300 charges were dismissed.

    The sentencing is set for May 30th.
