Sixty-one-year-old Peter Flynn of Silver Spring entered the plea Monday in federal court in Greenbelt. If the court accepts the plea bargain, Flynn will be sentenced to between two and 6 ½ years in prison on Oct. 19.

According to his plea, Flynn, a former special education teacher in Montgomery County, Flynn made files of child pornography available on a file-sharing network. Prosecutors say an undercover state trooper downloaded the files and police obtained a search warrant.
