Local shark expert Randy Honebrink is scheduled to plead guilty in federal court Thursday to possession of child pornography.

The charge, which carries a minimum 15-year prison term, stems from a raid on Hone-brink's Makiki apartment last June in which federal investigators seized a laptop computer, external thumb drives and numerous compact discs and digital video discs.

The federal prosecutor charged Honebrink, 58, Friday with possessing two child pornography images on his computer and two images on an external hard drive.

Honebrink is the information and education specialist for the state Department of Land and Natural Resources' Division of Aquatic Resources. He is also the coordinator and spokes-man for the Hawaii Shark Task Force.
