BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A Kenmare man has been sentenced to serve 45 years in federal prison for sexually exploiting a minor and possessing child pornography.

Authorities say 36-year-old Vernon Brekhus (BREHK’-uhs) was caught by a law officer working undercover online. A search warrant for his home turned up computers and other electronic devices with nearly 800 pictures and 16 videos of child porn.

Acting U.S. Attorney Christopher Myers says that after Brekhus serves his prison term, he will be on supervised release for the rest of his life. He also must pay $1,500 in restitution.
