FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A West Fargo man who ran for mayor in 2010 is going to federal prison for six years on a child porn charge.

The U.S. attorney’s office says 52-year-old Peter Karl was sentenced Monday for the receipt of materials involving the sexual exploitation of minors. After serving his prison time, he’ll be on supervised release for the rest of his life.

Karl has lived in West Fargo since 2005 and received 2 percent of the citywide vote when he ran for mayor in 2010. He also made an unsuccessful bid for a city commission position in 2012.

Authorities say Karl has a child pornography conviction in New York state for which he was given probation.
