An Oil City man entered guilty pleas Thursday to ten charges in a Venango County case in which he was charged with downloading child pornography.

22 year-old Jordon Astrove will not be sentenced until February.

Astrove was charged in June by the state Attorney General’s office.  He has since been lodged in the Venango County Jail on $50,000 bail.

One of the charges against Astrove was a count of the theft of services.  Investigators say they had initially investigated a family they discovered were not involved in the accusations, but learned Astrove had been able to access the family’s wireless Internet service through his laptop computer from his nearby home.
