A 64-year-old man will spend 6 and-a-half years in jail for downloading hundreds of images of child pornography.
Ralph Clos of New Bern was sentenced in U.S. District court.
Authorities say Clos pleaded guilty to receiving child porn back in September. Clos was busted after he downloaded the pictures from a website monitored by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
The images included prepubescent children in sexual acts and sadomasochistic abuse. After Clos finishes his sentence he'll have 5 years of supervised release.
