WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — A 31-year-old Winston-Salem man was convicted Monday on charges that he sexually abused a 4-year-old boy and had pornographic pictures of the child.

Scott Ray Klein, of Cumbie Road, entered an Alford plea in Forsyth Superior court to four counts of first-degree sex offense, four counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor and 12 counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.
