SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 News) – Sentencing has been pushed back for a Farmington man who admitted to having hundreds of disturbing child pornography images, but it’s still happening sooner than he hoped.

At the end of July, Taylor Ryan Keele, 44, pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography. As a result, a distribution charge was dropped.

In his plea agreement, Keele admitted to having more than 600 images of infants, toddlers and prepubescent teens being sexually abused and engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

The agreement calls for a prison sentence of two to seven years.

The defense asked the judge to put off sentencing for one year, so Keele could get counseling.

The judge denied that request but did give him an extra three months, and set sentencing for January 15, 2020.

In the meantime, he is free on bail.
