Former training director pleads guility to child porn

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The former director of a Birmingham-area vocational training and support services organization for people with disabilities pleaded guilty Thursday to possessing child pornography.

James Everett Crim, III, entered the guility plea Thursday during a federal court hearing, according to a statement from U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance sent to FOX6 News. Crim, 64, is a former executive director of WorkShops, Inc.

Vance said Crim pleaded guilty Thursday before U.S. District Judge R. David Proctor to one count of possessing child pornography. In his plea agreement, Vance said Crim admitted to sexual contact with a mentally handicapped woman, as well as to possessing pornographic images of a 12-year-old girl. Vance said authorities found the images on a laptop computer Crim possessed.

Crim resigned from WorkShops, Inc., in early December 2009. Vance said the mentally handicapped woman referred to in his plea agreement was not a participant in the WorkShops program.

Crim will be sentenced at a later date. Vance said the maximum sentence for possessing child pornography is 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
