CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - The U.S. Justice Department says a 29-year-old Chattanooga man has been sentenced to serve nearly six years in prison for distribution of child pornography through the online sales site Craigslist.

Authorities say U.S. District Judge Harry S. Mattice Jr. sentenced Larry Vance to 70 months in prison Monday and ordered him to be supervised by the U.S. Probation Office for 15 years after his release from prison.

Vance pleaded guilty to distribution of child pornography in December. A Justice Department news release says Vance was arrested after Texas law enforcement noticed that a Tennessee man was sending images of child pornography and discussing the molestation of these children through Craigslist.
