Huston Huddleston, the Los Angeles man who years ago announced that he had "saved the bridge" of a discarded Enterprise-D touring set, has now pleaded guilty to one count of possessing child pornography. The other criminal charges pending against him were dismissed during a Wednesday court hearing.

Huddleston was sentenced to time served (63 days in custody, plus 63 days for good behavior), three years probation, and he now has to register as a sex offender beginning in September 2018.

The full docket was provided to Ars by Crystal House, a former volunteer who had worked with Huddleston. She had been one of a handful of people who reported him to authorities and was ready to testify against him had there been a trial.
