SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) _ A central Missouri man is pleading guilty to making child pornography after confessing during a job interview with the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

U.S. Attorney Tammy Dickinson on Tuesday announced Cedric Lovejoy of Plato pleaded guilty to the charge.

The plea agreement states the 28-year-old confessed during a polygraph test with the patrol in November 2012 to using a 14-year-old to create child pornography.

State troopers later found a child porn video on one of his computers.

He faces between 15 and 30 years in federal prison without parole and fines of as much as $250,000.
