HOUSTON-- A sick white Houston surgeon has pleaded guilty to possession of 196,358 child pornography photos in a plea deal sending him to federal prison for up to 10 years.
Prosecutors said 73-year-old Dr. Bernard Albina pleaded guilty
Tuesday in Houston. He was arrested in January and remains in custody.
Investigators said Albina since 2003 inappropriately associated with 27 young boys ages 5-12 and took nude photos of all the infant boys.
Prosecutors said search warrants carried out in July 2009 led to the
recovery of millions of items from Albina containing child pornography and sex toys used.
The plea agreement means Albina must also pay a $75,000 fine. Formal sentencing is set for March.
