A Negaunee man and former WNMU-FM employee has entered a plea deal in an ongoing child pornography case, in which authorities say he used a work computer to download and view illegal material.

Stan Wright, 58, pled guilty to three counts of possession of child sexually abusive material, at a preliminary court hearing Friday morning, according to the Marquette County
Circuit Court. Each count carries a maximum penalty of fours years in prison along with a $100,000 fine.

Wright left employment at Northern Michigan University more than a year ago, NMU
officials said. He is set to appear back in court at 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 5, 18 for sentencing.
