CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

A Cincinnati man will spend the next 210 months in prison for possessing thousands of images of child pornography.

Michael Lewis Bohannon, 52, was sentenced on Monday in U.S. District Court and was ordered to be under court supervision for the rest of his life for possessing more than 13,000 images and 6,000 videos of child pornography.

Bohannon pleaded guilty on May 9, 2011 to one count of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. According to a statement of facts filed with his guilty pleas, an investigator with the Sheriff's Regional Electronics Computer Investigations (RECI) task force was patrolling the internet in December 2010 and connected with Bohannon through a peer-to-peer file sharing service, locating 41 files of likely child pornography and comparing them with a list of known child pornography files maintained in a database by the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Investigators obtained a search warrant for Bohannon's home in January 2011 and seized a computer. Forensic examination of the computer uncovered more than 13,000 images and 6,000 videos of child pornography. Agents arrested Bohannon. He has been in custody since his arrest.

Bohannon waived all rights to appeal. Once he completes his prison term, he will be placed under court supervision for the rest of his life. He will be required to register as a sex offender any where he lives, works, or goes to school.

Bohannon was previously convicted of possession of child pornography in 2005 and served 40 months in prison.
