SAN DIEGO (AP) - A man who was arrested returning to the United States from Mexico with a young boy has pleaded guilty to child pornography.
The U.S. attorney's office in San Diego says 65-year-old Earl Venton Buchanan admitted in federal court Wednesday that he produced a video of himself molesting a child in the bedroom of his home in Bloomington, near Los Angeles.
Buchanan faces between 15 and 30 years in prison when he is sentenced March 2 for sexual exploitation of a child.
He was arrested in July 2006 crossing the border in Calexico. Authorities say he returned from Mexico with a 5-year-old boy who was not related and that they found lubricants, condoms, children's videos and hotel receipts in his van.
