DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - An Ankeny man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for possession of child pornography and attempting to kidnap the children of a federal prosecutor.

Court documents say 35-year-old Aaron Lawrence Storm reached a plea deal with federal prosecutors in Des Moines in which he admitted to having cell phone video clips of child pornography.

Storm also admits he placed phone calls in July and August 2015 from jail in which he tried to negotiate a deal with a cellmate and an outside contact, which was an undercover officer, to have the children of the U.S. attorney prosecuting his child pornography case kidnapped.

After prison Storm must be supervised by a parole officer for 15 years and register as a sex offender.
