SAN JOSE " A former NASA engineer remains in custody after pleading guilty to accessing child pornography while he worked.

Federal prosecutors say Christopher Wiltsee was remanded into custody after pleading guilty Wednesday to a single felony charge of possessing child pornography on a government computer.

The 57-year-old Wiltsee no longer works for the agency.

Wiltsee is facing up to 10 years in prison when he's sentenced on June 4.
