Former Altoona superintendent Daniel Peggs is pleading guilty to one count of possession of child pornography as part of a deal with federal prosecutors. U-S District Judge James Peterson conditionally agreed to the deal Friday but won’t officially approve it until sentencing in November. Peggs is looking at ten years in federal prison and a possible 250-thousand-dollar fine. The plea agreement dismisses the more serious charges Peggs faced including sex trafficking a minor and production of child pornography. Peggs initially claimed he thought the girl was age 19 and cut off contact with her after learning she was only 17. Prosecutors say he did admit to keeping an explicit photo of her on his phone.
