OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — An Olympia man accused of trading child pornography that included some children as young as toddlers pleaded guilty Monday to possessing and dealing depictions of minors engaged in sexual explicit conduct.

Prosecutors are recommending a three-year prison term when 72-year-old John Robert Franklin is sentenced Jan. 26 in Thurston County Superior Court.

Franklin was arrested in July as part of a federal investigation. In December 2013, federal agents had arrested a Seattle man and discovered Franklin had exchanged sexually explicit images with him.

According to court documents, the photos and videos included victims as young as toddlers.

    Since it’s Christmas time,
    I wrote this song,
    sung to the tune of Since it’s Christmas time,
    I wrote this song,
    sung to the tune of
    “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.”
    ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    You better watch out
    You better not cry
    Better not pout
    I’m telling you why
    FBI is coming to town

    We’re making a list
    And checking it twice;
    Gonna find out
    Who’s naughty and nice
    FBI is coming to town

    We see you when you’re sleeping
    We know when you’re awake
    We know if you’ve been bad or good
    So be good for goodness sake!

    O! You better watch out!
    You better not cry
    Better not pout
    I’m telling you why
    FBI is coming to town
    FBI is coming to town

    Merry Christmas!

    “Santa Claus Is Coming To Town.”
