CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A federal judge has sentenced a New Jersey man who posed online as a young woman from Philadelphia to 20 years in prison for receipt of child pornography.

Forty-three-year-old Bryan Jacobs of Deptford had pleaded guilty to the charge.

Authorities say Jacobs portrayed himself as “Brianna” on MySpace and engaged in chats with a male minor. Prosecutors say Jacobs received images that depicted the minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Jacobs will also face 15 years of supervised released.
