RADFORD, Va. (WDBJ7) A 24-year-old Radford man will serve three years in prison for taking pornographic photos of a 16-year-old girl.

Eric Lee Diamond is charged with production of child pornography.

Investigators found the photos on Diamond's phone. Diamond told police that he took the photos in Montgomery County.

Diamond has seven additional years suspended as long as he registers as a sex offender and has no contact with the girl. He will be on supervised probation for seven years after finishing his sentence.

As part of the plea agreement, prosecutors dropped two additional charges of production of child pornography.

Diamond faces additional charges in Radford and is scheduled to be in court there on Friday.
