JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Jones County man facing multiple charges of child exploitation pleaded in court Wednesday. 

Robert Douglas Stringer pleaded guilty to four counts of exploitation of child. 

Stringer was sentenced to 20 years per count, 10 years to serve. Each sentence will run concurrently.

In April of 2015, Stringer led Jones County deputies into a stand-off during a routine validation of the sex offender registry.

Officers said they received a distress call from the homeowner several minutes later, claiming that Stringer was at the residence, armed with a 30/30 rifle.

Stringer was arrested on an unserved Jones County indictment, burglary of an inner door and felony possession of a firearm charges.  

In June 2015, Stringer pleaded guilty to failure to register as a sex offender and was sentenced to five years in prison. 

He also pleaded guilty in July 2012 to one count of photographing or filming another without permission and one count of voyuerism. He was sentenced to serve five years one each count to run concurrent.
