Posted by Christi Reynard email

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A federal judge sentenced a Maysville, KY man to 135 months, or more than ten years, in prison Monday for distribution of child pornography.

In October of 2008, police seized 24-year-old Larry Beckley's computer and found 159 images and four videos of child pornography.

Beckley admitted to investigators he made some of those images available for download on a peer to peer file sharing program.

Under federal law, Beckley must serve 85-percent of his prison sentence.  Once he's released he'll have to register as a sex offender, and be under the supervision of the US Probation Office for life.
