    A Massachusetts man who prosecutors say possessed a book titled, "How to Practice Child Love," has pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography.

    The U.S. Attorney's office says 75-year-old Edward Dupont, of Holyoke, entered his plea Tuesday in federal court.

    Prosecutors say Dupont was arrested in August 2015 after federal agents seized a computer with 16,000 images and 35 videos of child pornography.

    Dupont acknowledged he used the computer to download the images and access child pornography websites. He told prosecutors he did not have sexual contact with children.
