Rossignol pleaded guilty in May to federal charges of transportation and possession of child pornography. Prosecutors say Rossignol took photos of himself sexually abusing a 1-month-old girl and posted them online.

Rossignol was remorseful and did apologize in court. He has been held on $10,000 bail since his arrest last November. Rossignol still faces state charges related to the case.
