SALEM, OR (KPTV) -

A registered sex offender who was the focus of a manhunt in July pleaded guilty to child pornography charges Monday and was sentenced to 11 years in prison.

David Brown pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree encouraging child sex abuse and eight counts of second-degree encouraging child sex abuse.

Salem police put out an alert asking for the public's help locating Brown in July. He was placed on the department's 10 most wanted list after investigators said they learned Brown might be attempting to leave the state with a child.

However, police said he was alone when he was arrested that same night at a Portland hotel.

Officers said a local news viewer recognized Brown and called police.

As part of his plea agreement, 10 counts of second-degree encouraging child sex abuse were dismissed.
