COLUMBIA, S.C.-- A 48-year-old high school teacher from Aiken has pleaded guilty to distributing child pornography and attempting to entice what he thought was a 13-year-old boy for sex.

Federal prosecutors say Timothy Brumit was actually talking to a police officer in Virginia over the Internet in January.

Authorities say Brumit sent more than 600 pieces of child pornography to the officer.

Prosecutors say Brumit also said he wanted to bring the boy to South Carolina to have sex and asked if he would leave his family to be with him.

Brumit faces 10 years to life in prison on the enticement charge and five years to 20 years in prison on the pornography count.
