    Federal prosecutors say a former Anne Arundel County police lieutenant has pleaded guilty to receiving child pornography.

    James Cifala, 47, of Edgewater, Md., entered the plea on Thursday. He will be sentenced to five years in prison if the court accepts the plea agreement.

    Prosecutors said Cifala manipulated a 16-year-old girl into sending him sexually explicit photographs of herself via cell phone.

    Sentencing is set for Dec. 21.
