FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - A 42-year-old Fort Smith man has been sentenced in federal court to 30 years in prison on two counts of receiving images of child pornography.

Federal prosecutors said Thursday that John Lea must also complete 10 years of supervised release after the prison term.

In March, agents served a search warrant related to the trafficking of child pornography over the internet at Lea’s home. Investigators seized two cell phones and found multiple images and videos of child pornography on the devices.

Lea admitted to exchanging child pornography over the internet and to saving the images on his cell phone. Investigators said that one of the images depicted an adult male performing a sex act on a victim who was about 3 years old.
