Clown accused of child porn pleads guilty

FORT SMITH, AR (AP) - A Fort Smith man who worked as a clown has pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography.

The U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Arkansas announced Monday that 48-year-old Thomas Harold Morgan pleaded guilty to the charge.

Authorities said Morgan used his computer to download a picture of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

Morgan faces a minimum sentence of five years and a maximum sentence of 20 years. He will be sentenced at a later date.

Morgan was a children's entertainer, working under the name "Sondance the Clown."
