A well-known shark expert accused of possessing child pornography is expected to be in federal court Thursday.

Randy Honebrink’s attorney says his client will plead guilty.

Court documents allege Honebrink had explicit images on his personal computer and an external hard drive.

But his attorney says Honebrink did not know the images were illegal.

“Because the websites basically say that these are legal items and so he downloaded them. After he found out that they were illegal, he shouldn’t have possessed them and that’s why he’s taken responsibility,” attorney Bill Harrison said.

Honebrink faces up to 10 years in prison.
