The Palestine man who started the nationwide porn ring called "Candyman" has plead guilty to charges.
The 32 year old ringleader, Mark Bates of Palestine will face anywhere from 5 to 30 years in prison.
Last Friday, Bates told a Houston Federal Judge that he set up the Candyman website. Five more suspects were also in court Friday, all pleading guilty. The website has allowed some 7 thousand people around the nation to access the child porn.
