OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Omaha man has been sentenced to more than six years in prison for receiving and distributing child pornography.

U.S. Attorney Deborah R. Gilg said in a news release Thursday that 31-year-old Jeffrey R. Rongish was given a 78-month term. He will be under supervised release when he completes his sentence, and will be required to register as a sex offender.

Authorities say a Douglas County sheriff’s deputy used an undercover computer in October to detect a computer at Rongish’s Omaha home that offered to share child pornography.

Agents later recovered thousands of images of child pornography from a computer at the home. The ages of the children in the images ranged from infant to teenager.
