A Northborough man on probation from a previous child pornography conviction faced another charge at federal court in Worcester on Friday, authorities said.

Joshua Lundberg, 35, pleaded guilty to one count of possessing child porn in a plea agreement recommending 10 years in prison with 10 years of supervised release, according to the US attorney’s office for Massachusetts.

In May 2016, investigators traced a pornographic video to the IP address at Lundberg’s house and later executed a search warrant of the home, prosecutors said in a statement.

During the search, investigators found a laptop hidden in a slim space between the top kitchen cabinets and the ceiling, according to the statement. The laptop had been used to share the video and dozens of digital porn files, including a depiction of a young child being raped by a man.

At the time, Lundberg was on probation for a 2012 conviction in Worcester Superior Court for possessing and disseminating child pornography, prosecutors said.

Lundberg’s sentencing is scheduled for July 23.
