GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - A Grandville man is facing between five  and 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to charges of distributing child pornography over the internet.

William Russell Odett, 41, pleaded guilty on Monday in federal court.  He will also be required to register as a sexual offender, according to U.S. Attorney Patrick Miles, Jr.

Odett was investigated in May of 2012 when an undercover officer was able to download child pornography that Odett had made available on the internet.  Odett's home was then searched and a substantial collection of child pornography was found.

The Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations and the Ottawa County Sheriff's Office investigated the case.
