Also allegedly found were several images that showed young males in sexual positions. 
It appears a plea agreement for Whitson was submitted to the court on Tuesday, but the details of that agreement haven’t yet been made available. 
Whitson’s attorney, Jerry J. Cox, based out of Mt. Vernon, was unable to comment on the details of the plea agreement by press time Tuesday. 
Whitson was remanded back into custody after the hearing and transferred to the Laurel County Correctional Center, where he’s been since his arrest. 
A sentencing hearing is set for June 11, 2013. 
U.S. District Judge Danny C. Reeves is overseeing Whitson’s case.
