BANGOR, Maine (AP) - Prosecutors say a 46-year-old Winslow man faces up to 20 years in prison after pleading guilty in federal court to possession of child pornography.
    
Federal prosecutor Thomas Delahanty says Darrin Cates entered his plea on Friday. Court records say Cates used a computer and peer-to-peer software to share videos of child pornography between Sept. 15 and Oct. 30 of 2014.
    
A search of his home found more than 800 images and 290 videos depicting child pornography on his computer.
    
Cates faces up to a $250,000 fine in addition to the prison term. He will be sentenced after the completion of a pre-sentence report.
