LAUDERDALE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A Florence couple indicted on more than 100 counts of producing and possessing child pornography are now scheduled for federal court hearings to plead guilty.

According to federal court documents, David and Patricia Ayers will go before a judge on June 26 to change their plea. Both had previously pleaded not guilty.

Federal agents said they found dozens of pornographic images of a child on computers, cell phones and thumb drives. A Madison County man said he actually discovered the pictures when he was downloading some material from Patricia Ayers' computer.

Investigators said the crimes happened in Lauderdale County but were discovered when pictures were sent to a man in Madison County.

The couple was arrested on state charges in 2013. A federal grand jury indicted them on 106 counts of sexual exploitation of children back in April.
