(Neb.) - Western Nebraska man gets 2-5 years for child porn
GERING, Neb. (AP) - A 24-year-old Minatare man has been sentenced to prison for possessing child pornography.
Richard Knott had pleaded no contest to 10 felony counts. Prosecutors say the pleas were not part of a deal with Knott, who earlier had pleaded not guilty.
Knott was sentenced on Monday to two to five years on each count, to be served at the same time.
Scotts Bluff County Attorney Doug Warner says more than 10 images of child pornography were found on Knott's computer when investigators searched Knott's home on Feb. 24.
Nebraska State Patrol officers began to investigate Knott after being contacted by a Dent County, Mo., investigator with a computer crimes task force. The investigator said he had identified an
Internet address in Nebraska that had been sharing pornographic images.
