(Neb.)-Gering Man Sentenced For Child Porn

By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 12/04/2012 07:59 AM

     GERING, Neb. (AP) - A 30-year-old western Nebraska man has been given seven years in prison for having thousands of images of child pornography on his home computer.
 
     Thomas Schildt, of Gering, had made a deal with federal prosecutors who dropped one of the counts against him in exchange for his guilty plea to receiving and distributing child pornography.
 
     Prosecutors said in a news release Monday that Schildt also must serve 10 years of supervised release after he leaves prison and must register as a sex offender.
 
     Schildt was arrested on state charges last year, but they were dismissed as state prosecutors gave way to the federal case.
