HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - A Hattiesburg man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison on child pornography charges.

Grantham Armstrong Mitchell pleaded guilty in April to one count each of production of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

U.S. District Judge Keith Starrett sentenced him Monday to 15 years for production of child pornography and seven years for possession of child pornography. The sentences will be served concurrently.

Prosecutors say Mitchell pleaded guilty to producing a video of himself and a minor child engaging in sexually explicit conduct in Orange Beach, Alabama, in 2012. He also possessed numerous images and videos of minor children, as young as 12 years old, engaging in sex with adults.

The investigation began when a complaint was received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
