FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A 68-year-old truck driver arrested at a border crossing between North Dakota and Canada on allegations he possessed child pornography has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

Garold Miller, of Bridger, Montana, pleaded guilty in April to three counts of transportation of materials containing child pornography.

Court documents show that inspectors searched Miller’s truck on July 15 at the Pembina border station and found electronic devices that allegedly contained about 26,000 still images and more than 800 videos of child pornography.

A judge said during sentencing that Miller was an unevaluated sexual offender with possible prurient interest in children.

Prosecutors had recommended a sentence of 151 months. Miller’s attorney asked for 60 months.

A public defender could not be reached for comment.
