Under the plea deal, Matthew Jones will be deported back to England, and will have to register as a sex offender.

Jones was working as a camp counselor at the SCICON nature camp above Springville in Tulare County when he was arrested earlier this year.

The 19-year-old admitted to using a camp computer to receive images of child pornography between last August and this February.

He's scheduled to be sentenced July 8th, and faces a sentence of five to ten years.
