HOUSTON -

A doctor has pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.

Bernard Albina, 73, was arrested on federal charges in January. He has been in custody since that time because he was considered a flight risk.

The United States Attorney's Office said Albina admitted that he took inappropriate photographs of two boys. He admitted that he had inappropriately associated with several young boys since January 2003.

Investigators said they executed search warrants at several locations in 2009 and found CDs, DVDs, videotapes and printed material that contained child pornography. On Tuesday, Albina admitted to having 10 videos and 326 images that contained child pornography, officials said.

Albina will serve 10 years in federal prison and then serve five years of supervised released. He will also pay a $75,000 fine.
