Prosecutors say a man will spend 13 years in prison convicted of being one of the largest collectors of child sex abuse images in the history of eastern North Carolina.
52-year-old George Venters of Ayden was sentenced to 160 months in prison in federal court.
A search warrant was executed at his Ayden home in October 2011 by the Pitt County Sheriff's Office and the SBI and revealed a massive collection of child pornography, of more than 200,000 videos and images of children being sexually abused. The investigation revealed Venters collected the material for more than a decade.
