South Florida Man Sentenced to a Century Behind Bars For Child Porn

A South Florida man has will spend a century in prison after being convicted of federal child pornography charges.

Miami prosecutors said the 39-year-old man will also have to register as a sex offender and serve 25 years of probation if he ever gets out of prison.

The 100-year sentence was imposed by a U.S. District Judge after the man was convicted by a Miami jury.

Trial evidence allegedly showed that the man had computers and backup disks at his home that contained numerous images and videos of child pornography and child sexual abuse. Prosecutors went so far as to call the images horrific and sadistic.

In December, the jury convicted the man of five charges of receipt, possession and distribution of child pornography.

The Secret Service investigated the case.
