St. Petersburg, Florida -- A registered sex offender has been charged with receiving and possessing child pornography.

The State Attorney's Office filed charges against 40-year-old Richard Sikorski after he admitted he got child porn using his cell phone between May and October 2012. 

He told detectives he looked at it and immediately deleted it so he couldn't be detected by police. He also said he talked with others through text messages about the sexual exploitation of children. 

Investigators found about 29 videos of child porn on his cell phone's SD card. 

Sikorski, of St. Petersburg, has been a registered sex offender since 2001 based on a federal conviction for transporting child porn through his computer.

If convicted on all counts, he faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years and a maximum penalty of 60 years in federal prison.
