GRANT COUNTY, Ky. (FOX19) - A Grant County man was sentenced Friday to 11 years in prison after pleading guilty in May to transporting child pornography, the U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Eastern District of Kentucky said in a news release.

The plea agreement says that Robert Stanton Sexton, 28, admitted to law enforcement in 2018 that he used his Tumblr account to upload about seven videos that depict child pornography.

Court documents say Sexton he viewed, downloaded, and transported child pornography. His cell phone contained 20 nude images of a minor girl with whom he exchanged text messages, according to the documents. They also state that Sexton admitted he sent nude photos of himself to another underage girl.

Under federal law, Sexton must serve 85% of his prison sentence. Once he is released, he must report to the U.S. Probation Office for 25 years.
