YORK, Neb. (AP) — A 46-year-old York man has pleaded no contest to charges of child sex assault and pornography possession for distribution.

Jack Knight Jr. made his pleas on Tuesday in York County District Court. In exchange for his pleas, prosecutors dropped three other charges.

Knight was arrested when two people found sexually explicit photos on Knight's digital camera. The people had been looking for pictures of a fish.

Prosecutors say Knight's computer was missing from his residence when it was searched, but investigators said Knight had downloaded files onto the computer so the images could be shared.

Knight's sentencing date has not been set.
