COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – A pediatrician arrested for having child pornography pleaded guilty on federal court in Tuesday.

Doctor Yancy Craft moved to Columbus a year ago from Memphis for a job.

An investigation started by the FBI's Crimes Against Children Task Force in Memphis was transferred to Columbus when they learned he moved.

Agents tell News Leader 9, Craft also goes by the name of Travis Mobley and that he had not set up a practice in Columbus.

Undercover officers found child pornography owned by Craft during an internet investigation and arrested him just last month.

He is currently out on bond and is scheduled to be sentenced April 25th.
