RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A B-1 bomber pilot at Ellsworth Air Force Base has been sentenced on a child pornography charge.

Michael Fech on Monday pleaded guilty to possessing, manufacturing and distributing child porn. He was sentenced to serve about three months in prison and five years on probation.

Defense attorney John Rusch says the 31-year-old Air Force captain who has flown 2,500 combat hours also loses his military career and benefits.

Investigators say they found pornographic images of children as young as 3 years old on Fech’s computer.
