A doctor who worked at a prestigious Massachusetts boarding school has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges.

Richard Keller, of Andover, pleaded guilty Monday to two counts of receiving and one count of possessing child pornography during a hearing in U.S. District Court in Boston.

Under the terms of the deal with prosecutors, Keller's attorney and the government recommended a sentence of between five and 6 1/2 years. Sentencing was scheduled for Feb. 27.

Keller did not speak in court except to answer questions from the judge.

Under the agreement, the 57-year-old Keller acknowledged purchasing pornography from a Canadian company and having some of it sent to the grounds of the elite Phillips Academy in Andover, where he was the medical director for 19 years until stepping down in 2011.
