GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - A south Mississippi man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for possessing child pornography.

Harrison County Judge Lisa Dodson sentenced 48-year-old Michael Ishee of Saucier (SOH’-sher) on Friday.

Ishee also must pay a $10,000 fine, plus $1,000 to the Mississippi Children’s Trust Fund and $300 to the Crime Victim Compensation Fund.

He was sentenced in Harrison County Circuit Court after entering a guilty plea to one count of child exploitation.

Ishee was arrested in July 2010 following an investigation by the Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
