LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The young man from Lubbock who was arrested last year amid allegations of an international child pornography ring will be sentenced on September 7.

On Wednesday, Jeremy Labrec, 22, of Lubbock admitted to one count of Conspiracy To Distribute And Receive Child Pornography, one count of Conspiracy To Commit Sexual Exploitation Of Children, eighteen counts of Distribution Of Child Pornography and two counts of Sexual Exploitation Of Children.

The records were not immediately available but have since been unsealed and entered publicly into the court docket. The case has been prosecuted in Indianapolis federal court where the first of nine defendants was charged.

An official statement from the Department of Justice says there are more than 20 suspects and the investigation now reaches into several states, plus Sweden, Serbia, the Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.

Court records say Labrec admitted he had sexual contact with three small children, and he told investigators he had access to those children through babysitting jobs. Labrec worked at a daycare prior to his arrest and the daycare has said that allegations of abuse were not on the school property. Court records do not specify if the Lubbock children were photographed or videotaped at the time Labrec abused them.

Court records do say the members of the group shared with each other images of children under the age of five being sexually abused.

Of those who have been sentenced so far the penalties have ranged from 8 years to 315 years in prison.
