A North Texas man and his wife have pleaded guilty to child pornography charges after both were traced to a homeless shelter in Nevada. Federal prosecutors say 39-year-old Buddy Anderson pleaded guilty Thursday in Dallas to producing child pornography and to producing obscene images of the sexual abuse of children. He'll be sentenced Sept. 14.

His wife, 38-year-old Sharon Lee Anderson, pleaded guilty last month to permitting the production of child pornography. She'll be sentenced July 18.

Both could get up to 30 years in prison.

The Andersons were living in Ennis, Texas, when investigators say they apparently learned they were sought over the sexual exploitation of a 5-year-old girl. The couple fled to Las Vegas, where they were arrested March 24.

Further details on the victim were not released.
