A Fort Carson soldier pleaded guilty in court to two counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust.

Joe Alfred Garcia Jr. will be sentenced in February. He faces a minimum of 10-30 years in prison and 20 years of parole.

Police told 11 News they were first alerted to Garcia's crimes after Homeland Security Investigations in Boston called and asked for help with help in a child porn investigation.

Garcia has been stationed in many different cities and states during his military career.
