CAMDEN -

(AP) - A sixth New Jersey federal prison inmate serving a sentence for trafficking in child pornography has admitted possessing and distributing child sex abuse videos inside the prison.

Federal prosecutors say Christopher Roffler pleaded guilty Wednesday. The 30-year-old Virginia Beach, Virginia man faces at least 10 years in prison when he's sentenced in August, a term he would serve after his current sentence is completed.

Prosecutors say Roffler was among several Fort Dix inmates who used contraband cellphones and removable storage cards to share child porn. Five other inmates have pleaded guilty, while charges are pending against two others.

Roffler admitted having a memory card that contained 305 videos and 16 images of child porn, some of which depicted prepubescent children and sadistic and masochistic conduct. He also admitted using a smartphone to view and possess child porn.
