A Texoma man accused of possessing more than 1,000 images of child pornography pleaded guilty in the 30th District Court Friday.

35-year-old John Vernon Boyett was sentenced to 15 years because he had no prior arrest record.

Boyett was arrested in April of 2010 when authorities executed a search warrant on his home. Officials report Boyett waived his Miranda rights and confessed to downloading the child pornography from the internet.
