He faces potential penalties of up to ten years in prison and a fine of $250,000.

The charges arose after sexually explicit photos of a minor girl, taken by Buckley between August and December 2021, were found on his cellphone during an FBI investigation led by Special Agent-in-Charge Matthew Miraglia.

The sentencing will be determined later by Chief U.S. District Judge Elizabeth Wolford.
