BOSTON (CBS) — A pediatric endocrinologist from Children’s Hospital has pleaded guilty to three counts of owning child pornography.

Dr. Richard Keller faces more than six years in prison, at his sentencing in February.

In September 2012, the U.S. Attorney’s office said Keller purchased and ordered over 50 DVDs of child pornography online.

Investigators also found more than 500 photographs and between 60 – 100 DVDs inside Keller’s home.

He’s been placed on administrative leave from Children’s Hospital.

He also served as Medical Director at Phillips Academy for 19 years and taught classes at Harvard.
