An Johnson County man arrested for allegedly possessing child pornography agreed to a plea deal Tuesday.

Alexander Evans agreed to plead guilty to one count of knowingly receiving child pornography. The other count — the same charge but on a different date — will be dismissed.

Johnson County deputies executed a search of Alexander Evans’ residence March 4, 2009. Deputies seized three computers in his possession. The computers allegedly contained thousands of visual depictions of child pornography.

Evans’ plea agreement states he will plead guilty to the first count, which covered the time period of Oct. 1, 2008 through March 3, 2009, if the court agrees to dismiss the second count that occurred on or about March 3, 2009.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
