LUBBOCK, Texas -

A West Texas man charged with molesting a girl for years and allegedly giving her his ex-wife's wedding ring has pleaded guilty to producing child pornography.    

Federal prosecutors in Lubbock say 77-year-old Dale Wray Fulford of Slaton remains jailed pending sentencing. Fulford faces up to 30 years in prison after pleading guilty Friday to production of child pornography.

Investigators say Fulford enticed a girl to engage in sexually explicit conduct that he recorded via digital camera. A grand jury last month indicted Fulford on the child porn production charge.   

Fulford still faces charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child and sexual assault of a child. Prosecutors say Fulford helped the victim's parents financially, looked after her at his house and gave the now-teenager his former wife's ring.
