MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A 51-year-old Butte man has been sentenced to seven years in federal prison for distributing child pornography and possessing a firearm that was not registered to him in the national registry.

US Department of Justice officials say Robert White was sentenced Thursday in Missoula to seven years for each count, to run concurrently. Chief U.S. District Court Judge Dana Christensen also sentenced White to 10 years supervised release and $4,000 in restitution. He must forfeit his laptop computer and the firearm.

The Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force found that White was writing sexually explicit phrases in online chat rooms regarding children and posting links to files of child pornography. Officials say White distributed child pornography more than a dozen times.

White also had an unregistered 12-gauge shotgun.
