Law enforcement said Pratt told them he has been involved in child porn for over a year.

Pratt was charged with child pornography, criminal use of a communication facility, and 10 counts of disseminating photos or films of child sex acts.

He is being held in the Luzerne County Prison on $100,000 cash bail.
